Christmas Day Car Accidents Claim Two Lives in Alabama

Comments Off

Two Alabama residents were killed in separate motor vehicle accidents in Escambia and Mobile counties on Christmas Day.

A man, 40, of Mobile county died in a one vehicle accident that troopers believe may have been alcohol related, while a woman, 60, of Repton died in a two-car crash on Interstate 65, according to troopers.

In the first accident the man was traveling west on Russell Road when his Ford F-150 veered off the road, striking several trees. He was not wearing a seatbelt and the impact of the crash ejected him from the truck. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Officials are awaiting toxicology results.

Just 12 hours later a woman was killed in a two-car crash on I-65 when her Jeep Grand Cherokee collided with a Honda Accord, according to troopers. She was pronounced dead at the scene. The driver of the accord was not injured in the crash.

Troopers are investigating both crashes and no further information is readily available.
