Earle was involved in a head-on collision March 26 at Pulaski Pike and Grizzard Road while on-duty. As of April 4, he was still in Huntsville Hospital and police said at the time he was in stable condition.

It's unclear whether Earle died from injuries sustained in the wreck or some other medical reason. At last check, the wreck was still under investigation.
