WETUMPKA, Ala. (AP) – State troopers have identified five people killed in traffic accidents that they say may have been weather-related.
Two people were killed at 11:35 a.m. Tuesday when a pickup and a train collided two miles north of Cottondale. Troopers identified the victims as 57-year-old Charles Kelly Meiklejohn of Gulf Shores and 39-year-old Nahum Terrance Mickles of Foley.
They say 29-year-old Tyrell Harris of Wetumpka and his 2-year-old son, Rayne Harris, were killed shortly before 8 a.m. Tuesday in a seven-vehicle collision on Alabama Highway 14 west of Wetumpka. Troopers say their preliminary investigation indicates ice on a bridge was a factor.
A two-vehicle crash about 11 a.m. Tuesday in Perry County killed one of the drivers, 64-year-old Emma Evans of Birmingham. The accident occurred 12 miles north of Marion on Alabama Highway 5.
