Albany -- A wreck on the Liberty Bypass took the life of Alicia Marie Gambrel last week when the truck she was riding in struck a semi-trailer of the side of the road.
She left two young children, five-year-old Andrew, and one-year-old Tristan. Ms. Gambrel had no life insurance, and now grandparents are trying to raise the children.
Funds have been established for each child at Security Bank of Albany. If you can help with a donation, the family would be grateful.
