AL.com reports on a tragic accident that resulted in one fatality earlier this month. According to police, the crash occurred at around 8 a.m. just north of Interstate 65. Investigators believe a medical condition may have contributed to the accident.
The driver, who was in his mid-30s, may have suffered a heart attack before losing control of his vehicle. According to reports, he had been complaining of chest pains at work earlier that day, and police can only assume he was heading to the hospital at the time of the crash. Authorities had to close off a section of the highway to clear the scene and divert northbound traffic into the southbound lanes.
