UPDATE: Decatur Police say weather played a factor in a deadly wreck. Morgan County Coroner Jeff Chunn says the driver, 27-year-old Malloree Teague from Decatur, died in the crash. Another person was also injured in the three-vehicle crash.

The wreck involved a Dodge Challenger, a Morgan County District One truck and a white Infiniti SUV. Chunn says Teague was driving south on Highway 67 in the Dodge Challenger when the car hydroplaned and she lost control. The car went into oncoming traffic and crashed into the SUV. The driver's side door of her car was then hit by a Morgan County District One truck. Teague was transported to Decatur-Morgan Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. The driver of the truck was also taken to the hospital. His injuries are considered non-life threatening.

This marks the second deadly crash on Point Mallard Parkway in Decatur in just over one month. 

Decatur police swarmed the scene around 11:30 a.m. Traffic was at a standstill and WAAY 31 spoke to drivers that shared their concerns about the safety of the road. 

"A sense of dread and sorrow and sadness mostly, thinking about it. It's scary honestly. It is really scary," Calvin Rivera said. 

Rivera takes Point Mallard Parkway to get to Priceville almost every day. He sat in traffic for 45 minutes just staring at the deadly wreck in front of him. Rivera says he always drives the speed limit on the road for this exact reason.

"I would be driving at the speed limit and people would be driving at least 10 mph over," Rivera said. 

All lanes of the road have reopened. Decatur police are investigating what caused the wreck and hope to release more information by Thursday.
