A 55-year-old Blountsville, Alabama, woman was killed and two others were injured Sunday during a two-car collision on U.S. Route 231 near Blountsville in Blount County.
Alabama State Troopers told The Birmingham News that the fatal crash occurred around 1:30 p.m. when a 1992 Chevrolet S-10 pickup truck drove head-on into a 2001 Mercury Villager van.
Both of the vehicles’ drivers—aged 57 and 76, respectively—were injured in the crash. The 57-year-old male was transported to Huntsville East Hospital while the 76-year-old female was taken to Birmingham’s UAB Hospital. Both are Blountsville residents.
The Chevrolet’s passenger was killed.
Troopers told The Birmingham News that they will continue to investigate the accident.
