A terrible accident occurred on Alabama Highway 69 near the intersection of McFarland Boulevard on Friday morning. Two people in a Ford Escort died at the scene of the accident after colliding head-on with a Chrysler PT Cruiser. The cause of the accident remains unknown and is still under investigation.
At about the same time, an unrelated accident near the intersection of Frank Lary and Mit Lary Roads occurred when a dump truck collided with a van. According to reports on TuscaloosaNews.com, the van’s driver failed to yield to the dump truck’s right of way. The resulting crash caused the truck to overturn, spilling dirt across the roadway. Both drivers were injured but are in stable condition, reports said.
Why has Alabama 69 become so dangerous to motorists? What should the Department of Motor Vehicles do about it?
