UPDATE: Alabama State Troopers say two Cincinnati, Ohio residents were killed when their car left the road and hit a tree on the driver’s side.

Troopers say excessive speed was a factor in the wreck on AL 184 in Colbert County, about 3 miles east of Muscle Shoals. Both the driver and passenger died at the scene.

Officials are not releasing the names of the victims until family is notified.


The Colbert County Emergency Management Agency reports that a wreck with multiple fatalities has occurred on Second Street in Brick Hatton in Leighton near Galaxy Flea Market.

EMA Director Michael Smith said the victims' bodies are still in the vehicle, and that the suspects there are at least two victims. 

The Alabama Department of Transportation reports the wreck is near Mimosa Drive, and that the roadway is closed.

The Colbert County Sheriff's Office said the wreck is under investigation and it has no other information Tuesday night.
