TX Parents Die in Cherokee Wreck and Baby is Injured

According to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution on, a Cherokee County wreck has taken the lives of a man and woman from TX and injured their 2-month-old baby.

The baby sustained a traumatic brain injury and a broken leg from the accident according to County authorities.

The couple, Rick Dean Headen, 48, and Charlotte Ann Sedtal, 40, from Sour Lake, Texas were traveling east on Knox Bridge Hwy just west of Canton when it appears their vechicle, a Ford Focus, crossed into the other lane and hit a pick-up truck. Headen and Sedtal were pronounced dead at the scene. The baby was trasnported to an Atlanta-area children’s hospital.

Additionally, two adults in the pick-up truck were injured and transported to an area hospital as well. Per the article, those injuries did not appear life threatening, however.

The wreck is currently being investigated.

Our prayers are with the family and friends of Mr. Headen and Ms. Sedtal. We hope their infant son is able to make a full recovery from his injuries. We send our best wishes and prayers for full recoveries to the other two people who were injured in this horrible wreck.

  • Awesome Lawyer and very helpful!

  • Mr. Wilson is truly a very good person who cares about people. I understand he selected this career but I do know he makes many sacrifices to help he’s clients. I am very grateful to have had him as my attorney and if I ever have to use one again (hopefully not) it will be Mr. Wilson.

  • He worked with me. He told me everything. He called me. He gave me all the information.

  • He will be my family lawyer from now until the end because I can trust him.

  • He's just a great guy.

  • He always calls you right back and even if it's on the weekend - he's going to call you back.
