Two separate crashes that took place this Friday across Alabama claimed two lives. One of victims who died hailed from the Crenshaw County. The other belonged to the Geneva County.
The first accident took place on the Pike County Road. Only a few miles from Goshen, the crash occurred when a car struck a minivan. Deborah Pugh, 46, of Luverne was driving the 2004 Ford Mustang at the time when it hit the minivan. Luverne was not wearing a seatbelt at the time. She was thrown from the Ford during the crash and died at the scene of the accident. The crash happened at 2:55 p.m.
The second accident took place in the Houston County, close to Hartford. It occurred at around 5 p.m. when a 2014 Nissan Titan collided with a 2005 Ford Ranger. Ronald Jay Spires, 48, was driving the 2014 Nissan Titan at the time.
Spires was not wearing a seatbelt. Due to the sheer force of the collision, he was ejected from the vehicle. He sustained critical injuries and died at the scene of the accident. The driver of the other vehicle also sustained life-threatening injuries and was rushed to the Flowers Hospital. Wicksburg Rescue played a role in providing primary aid and then transporting the injured man to the hospital.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency is investigating both incidents. Authorities have not revealed the causes behind either accident and it remains to be seen whether a conclusion has been reached as to what caused the accidents or who the negligent party was. It is also unclear at this time whether or not alcohol was a factor in causing the accident.
The police have also not revealed the identities of the survivors in either accident. It is expected that more details on either crash will be forthcoming soon.
