Two-Vehicle Truck Crash Kills One, Injures Another
A two-vehicle truck crash that took place on last Tuesday claimed the life of one person while injuring another. According to the details shared by the authorities, the incident took place at the Geneva County 49 and Alabama Highway 103. It involved one pickup truck and a semitruck.
Alabama Law Enforcement Agency revealed that the two vehicles involved in the fatal crash included a 2016 GMC Denali and a 2001 International truck. The driver of the GMC Denali failed to yield the right of way, which was when the International truck struck his vehicle. The crash resulted in heavy damage to both vehicles while also causing serious injuries to the drivers of both vehicles.
Andrew Mullis, 37, has been identified as the driver of the GMC Denali. Mullis was rushed to the Flowers Hospital after sustaining critical injuries. However, he couldn’t recover and succumbed to his injuries at the hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Mullis also had one other passenger in his vehicle at the time, although the identity of the passenger has not been revealed by ALEA. The passenger was also taken to the Flowers Hospital. However, the injuries of the passenger are reported to be non-critical.
The driver of the International truck has been identified as Timothy Glanton, 37, of Abbeville. ALEA did not share any details on whether or not Glanton was injured in the crash and if so, what is the extent of his injuries.
Slocomb fire department was among the agencies that responded to the incident. According to the department’s chief, firefighters and EMS members from Slocomb were fortunately at a store close to the site of the crash. So they were able to respond immediately to the incident, reaching the crash site in no time. Investigations by ALEA are still ongoing into the incident.
