Jay Briscoe's daughters are heading home one month after they were admitted to the hospital in critical condition following the tragic car crash that left the longtime wrestler dead.

In a Facebook post, the girls' mother Ashley Pugh said that their daughters were released from the hospital. Pugh shared the two girls, ages 9 and 12, with Ring of Honor pro wrestler Briscoe.

"Got all my babies back together," Ashley wrote on Facebook alongside a family photo. Both girls are pictured smiling in wheelchairs in the post.

Both of the wrestler's daughters were injured in the crash on Jan. 17, which occurred east of Laurel, a small town in Sussex County, Delaware.

According to a press release from the Delaware State Police, the crash happened on Laurel Road, just west of Goose Nest Road.

Briscoe was driving a 2016 Silverado 2500 eastbound on Laurel Road when another driver, Lillyanna Ternahan, of Frankford, Delaware, was driving a 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 in the westbound lanes. Ternahan crossed the center line directly into the path of Briscoe's vehicle, according to Delaware State Police.
