Tragic news coming from Louisiana over the holidays as a newly-engaged, pregnant mom and her infant son were killed in a car crash caused by a drunk driver on Christmas Eve.

There’s few things more despicable than someone not thinking of others by avoiding the road when intoxicated, knowing full well they’re putting the lives of others at risk.


Shelly Mulkey, 19, was on her way home from a Christmas party held at one of her relatives’ houses in the city of Loranger, with Ryan McCollum Sr. — her fiance — and their 7-month-old son, Ryan McCollum Jr. when they were rear ended by a drunk driver.

Louisiana State Police determined Jillian Pamela Ramsey, 36, was driving while drunk and fleeing an earlier car crash when she “swerved and struck McCollum Sr.’s vehicle, rupturing the gas tank and engulfing the vehicle in flames,” according to The Times-Picayune.

Witnesses reportedly pulled McCollum Sr. and Mulkey from the car, but McCollum Jr. was trapped inside.


McCollum Jr. and Mulkey were pronounced dead by the Tangipahoa Parish Coroner’s Office at the scene.

McCollum Sr. said he was treated for burns to his ear and face and injuries to his leg, while state police said Ramsey only received minor injuries.

McCollum Sr., 24, told The Advocate he had just proposed to Mulkey, whom he had been dating for four years, as a Christmas Eve gift.

McCollum went on to say, “She was an awesome mama and an awesome friend. I just want to hold them both in my arms again so bad.”

The father of Shelly, Billy Mulkey, had this to say to the drunk driver who’s pathetically poor judgment took the lives of his loved ones away:

“That’s three lives she took from me. That woman is going to have to live with that the rest of her life.”

Ramsey was booked in Tangipahoa Parish Jail, charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, hit-and-run and careless operation.

This is truly a nightmare scenario, especially for anyone who is married and has children. Nothing can compare to the pain of losing a child and it’s something all of us hope we never have to face in this life.

What Ramsey did by getting behind the wheel knowing she was drunk is utterly deplorable and twisted. This woman is a menace to society who deserves the stiffest penalty allowed by the law and probably more so that isn’t.

While it will certainly be rough for her to live with herself for the heinous actions she carried out that night, she deserves much worse.

If the law doesn’t punish her to the fullest extent, a grave injustice will be done to the Mulkey and McCollum family.

There’s nothing wrong with enjoying a few brews or drinks with friends, but you are still required to use common sense, decency, and comply with the law. Getting behind the wheel of a vehicle with the knowledge that your abilities are impaired is the epitome of selfishness.

Please keep the Mulkeys and the McCollums in your thoughts and prayers as they seek to heal from this horrific turn of events.
