Former Alabama football star Mark Ingram was involved in a Huntsville truck accident. Fortunately, Ingram was uninjured in the wreck. According to the Huntsville Times, the automobile accident occurred this morning on Leeman Ferry Road in Huntsville, when Ingram’s car collided with an 18 wheeler. Huntsville Police are still investigating the collision.
Ingram was in Huntsville, AL along with former Alabama star wide receiver Julio Jones for a meet and greet at a local restaurant. Ingram is truly fortunate to be uninjured in this crash. Most wrecks involving an 18 wheeler and passenger car involve serious injuries due the tremendous size and weight of these trucks. For example, in 2009, 1,615 people were injured in Alabama truck wrecks. Further, in 2009, 84 people were fatally injured in truck accidents in Alabama.
