Redman Clinging to Life After Fatal Wreck

Redman Clinging to Life After Fatal Wreck

Posted: Updated:
 
The Alabama woman killed in a car accident while driving to Mobile with her fiance to get married was laid to rest on Tuesday.
 
Brittany Huber was buried in her wedding dress at Mobile Memorial Gardens Cemetery, three days after she would have been married to John Redman, according to a statement released by Huber's mother Margaret Hall.
 
Huber and Redman were driving to Mobile for their wedding last week when a car accident in Atlanta led to Huber's death. Redman was sent to the hospital with severe injuries.
 
News 5 has learned Redman remains in the hospital in stable condition. Hall says he is being treated by doctors for major injuries to his brain. 
 
According to Hall, Redman has remained unconscious since the accident and is still unaware of Huber's death. 
 
Contrary to previous reports, Hall says the accident was weather-related. She says the car hydroplaned into a pillar at the base of a bridge. A brunt of the damage was done to the passenger side, where Huber was sitting, Hall added.
 
Huber, a Mobile native, is in the thoughts of her family and friends on the Gulf Coast.
 
"She absolutely looked like an angel," wrote Hall, referring to her daughter's burial. "On her arm she wore the bracelet that (Redman) would have given her on her wedding day."
 
”I understand that bad things happen in this world," said Huber's sister Gretchen Hall in a statement. "What keeps me going is I know one day when I get to heaven I’m going to see my big sister and she’ll be able to hear my actual voice and her gorgeous set of wings that she earned”. 
  
Redman graduated from Spanish Fort High School in 2009. Huber graduated from St. Paul's in Mobile.
