A 14-year-old Huntsville, Alabama, girl was killed and four other people were injured in a two-vehicle collision Friday. According to WAFF 48 News, the crash happened just after midnight on Highway 24, near the intersection with County Road 217.
Reports from the Alabama State Police indicate that the crash happened as a white car carrying the young girl and three others was heading east on Highway 24. When the car began to slow to make a right turn onto CR 217, a pickup truck failed to stop and rear-ended the car. The collision sent the car sailing into a ditch, while the truck skidded across the intersection before stopping in the median of the road.
The young girl, who was riding in the backseat, died as a result of the injuries she sustained in the crash. The three passengers in the car, along with the driver of the pickup truck, were taken to a local hospital in Decatur to receive treatment for non-life threatening injuries.
State troopers say that they will continue to investigate the accident and that charges could be filed later.
The Alabama Auto Accident Attorneys with Norris Injury Lawyers would like to remind young drivers to always buckle up and obey the speed limit. The firm would also like to send their thoughts and condolences to the family of the young girl who died in this tragic accident.
