Warriner's daughter, Chloe Fortenberry, 3, was a passenger in the car.
All three were transported by Russell County EMS to the Russell County Hospital.
Chloe Fortenberry was airlifted to the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville where she died early Sunday morning.

James Gray was treated at the Russell County Hospital and later released.
The investigation is ongoing by Chief Deputy Nick Bertram.
