POPE COUNTY, Ark.– A Pope County family asks for prayers as they prepare to bury their four-year-old son killed in a wreck last weekend.

They were on their way to Florida when authorities said a driver ran a stop sign and hit the family’s SUV in eastern Mississippi in Sunflower County. 

The family told us 4-year-old Trently Miller died, 6-year-old Adalynn Miller was injured and their mother 24-year-old Toni Miller was injured too.

Trently was four but Trenly’s sweetness and smarts will forever impact his family and many people in Dardanelle.

The family gave us a recent snap chat video of Trently and his aunt.

In the video, Trently said, “I love you.”

Trently Miller’s family clings onto the 3 words on one of the 4-year-old’s many recent snap chats with his aunt.

His mother Toni Miller said, “He was my happiness him and his sister both but he was my love bug.”

His father Brandon Miller took a deep breath trying to think of the words to say.

His parents got back to Arkansas Friday still wearing wristbands from visiting their 6-year-old daughter at the children’s hospital in Memphis.

Toni said, “He was on the low-end spectrum of autism. So, he was astonishingly smart and [sic] and just brilliant in every way possible.”

Last Saturday May 5th the Pope County mother’s trip to see family in Florida with her two kids stopped when Mississippi Highway Patrol said a 22-year-old driver didn’t stop at a stop sign and hit them- killing the child who not only loved but also knew his numbers and shapes.

His mother said, “Octagon or a parallelogram or anything, anything  stuff that most people who have been out of school for more than  two years wouldn’t remember.”

The family said his 6-year-old sister Adalynn fighters her injuries in a Memphis Hospital with her kindergarten teacher by her side while her parents bury their baby boy.

The father described Trently as, “The smartest little kid you’ll ever know. Smartest little boy ever.”

Trently may have only celebrated four birthdays but the celebration of his life will never end.

His mother said, “There’s not one moment in particular that I can say will always stay in my heart because every moment was amazing.”

Mississippi Highway Patrol said no arrest has been made yet. MHP Sgt. Ronnie Shive said officers are still investigating what caused the driver to run the stop sign.

The family is raising money to help them with Trently’s funeral expenses and Adalynn and their mother’s medical expenses.
