Units from Siloam and Cuba Fire Departments responded to two separate accidents at the intersection of Alabama Highway 17 and US Highway 80. Both accidents involved commercial vehicles but only one accident involved injuries. Units remained on scene to keep traffic flowing on these busy highways while Alabama State Troopers investigated and wrecker companies removed the debris. This incident is just one of many that these two departments have responded to at this location. Hopefully, the ALDOT crews and contractors working hard to complete the new bridge and highway will have AL17 open again and many of these accidents can be prevented.
Accident occured on Friday Afternoon around 1600. The occupant of the vehicle was transported to the hospital.
The commercial vehicle lost its load in the collision.
