Sadly, these accidents continue to happen in Jasper, Walker and all over the state of Alabama. When someone is involved in a motor vehicle accident caused by a distracted or drunk driver, it is very important for them to ensure that the right steps are taken afterward and hold the negligent driver accountable.
A car accident which recently occurred Cullman County Road 1435 claimed the life of a 76-year-old man, according to law enforcement officials. The cause of the accident, which took place on a Monday morning, is still being investigated by Alabama State Troopers.
