With multiple lanes and directions of traffic all converging at that same location, auto accidents are very common at intersections in Jasper and other cities throughout the U.S. Like most wrecks, those that occur in an intersection can also have a range of consequences from minimal damage to one or both vehicles to serious injury and, in some cases, death.
A recent car accident that occurred at an intersection in Ardmore left several people, including an eight-year-old boy, injured. According to reports, a northbound vehicle collided with a southbound vehicle when turning at the intersection of Alabama Highway 53 and Pine Dale Road. It was not reported what may have caused the accident, nor was it indicated which driver had the right of way.
