A Cantonment woman has been identified as the victim in a fiery fatal crash October 21 in Baldwin County.

After the initial collision, the Nissan struck the rear of a 2022 Freightliner tractor-trailer driven by Gurkirt S. Benipal, 26, of Cypress, Texas, and was then struck on the rear by the 2020 Freightliner, according to troopers.

Wiggins was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash about 9:55 p.m. on October 21  on I-10 about two miles east of Mobile.

“As a result of the fire, Wiggins’s identity was not immediately available,” ALEA Corporal Reginal M. King said Monday.

    So sorry to hear of this horrifically tragic news. Amber was a strong woman that didn’t take BS from anyone. You could take her or leave her, it made no difference to her. My heart breaks for Brandon and the kids. I’m so sorry for your loss.

    A beautiful young woman, taken horribly much too soon. May God bless her soul and grant her family strength through this time of sorrow.
    Rest in Peace Ms. Wiggins.
