Crash report reveals details on Howells Ferry fatal accident

FOX10 News obtained the crash report on the accident that killed a 27 year-old mother.

Investigators say Sunday June, 1 Kellie Kollins was killed when the 1998 Mazda 626 she was driving collided with a Ford F-150.

The report says Kollins was traveling eastbound on Howells Ferry Road when for an ” unknown reason” she crossed the center lines and hit truck headed westbound.

The report says the vehicles hit head-on. Investigators say Kollins was not wearing a seat belt and the second driver was wearing a seat belt.

Some drivers say the intersection of Howells Ferry and Firetower Roads need more safety measures, like a caution light.

FOX10 News wanted to know how many accidents have happened at this intersection in the past 2 years. We have submitted a written request to the The Alabama Department of Transportation to find out how many accidents have happened at this intersection in the past 2 years.

An official said it could take up to a month to process the request.

If there are a significant amount of accidents in that area it may get the attention of county leaders. The death of Kollins has already got the attention of Connie Hudson. She is the commissioner over that district. She says she is requesting the accident history in that area for herself and is looking into what can be done to make the road safer.
