A terrible head-on collision between two vehicles happened over the weekend on a road in Hazel Green. The nighttime wreck took the lives of three people and sent two others to Huntsville Hospital.
The wreck involved two cars and was so bad that one of the vehicles burst into flame. What exactly happened that led to the disaster is still under investigation by Alabama State Troopers.
Three people died in the car that caught on fire and another passenger in that car was taken to Huntsville Hospital with only minor injuries. The other car had only one person inside who was airlifted to Huntsville Hospital. Police officials have only said that the other person was suffering from serious injuries.
Police have not yet been able to identify which car was on the wrong side of the road and thus responsible for the collision. The resulting fire was so severe that investigators are still piecing things together.
Our deepest sympathies go out to the family of those who was died in the Hazel Green wreck. Losing a loved one is never easy, but the died is made even worse when the loss is sudden and unexpected. The family should consider speaking with an Alabama wrongful death lawyer to discuss their legal options. Just because the at-fault driver is facing criminal charges does not mean the family is precluded from seeking some semblance of justice through a civil claim.
