Ozark, AL - One Killed, Another Injured in Collision on AL-27

Car crashes continue to be the leading cause of death and serious injury in Alabama. Statistics show that a car crash claims a life on Alabaman roads almost every nine hours and ten minutes. In a recent year, there were 872 deadly collisions and 953 fatalities in the state overall. Unfortunately, many people in the state fail to take the appropriate precautions to avoid serious injuries, and over 56 percent of the state’s road deaths include unrestrained passengers. Most of these crashes occur in rural regions and involve drivers under the age of 19.
