Tina Wesson's 25-year-old son, Taylor Collins, was sadly killed in a car accident on Dec. 3, 2013. Taylor's sister, Katie Collins, thanked fans on Twitter for their kind thoughts and prayers.

Taylor Lee Collins was the passenger in a vehicle that hit a house in Chattanooga, Tenn. Collins was ejected from the front passenger seat and later died at a local hospital. The driver of the car, who was not named, only had minor injuries. The Chattanooga Police Department said the accident involved a single vehicle and the investigation is ongoing.
