1 adult and 2 children injured in shipwreck near Moores Mill Road

MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) – Three people were taken to hospital in critical condition after a shipwreck on Darwin Road on Sunday afternoon.

Officials at the scene told News 19 that it appeared the car, carrying an adult and two children, had left the road and hit a tree. The car appeared to stop within inches of sliding down an embankment.

Moores Mill Volunteer Fire and Rescue first responders said the two children were out of the car when they arrived. They explained that all three were alert but in critical condition when the ambulance left for the hospital.

Ethan Fitzgerald, Moores Mill Volunteer Fire Department Public Relations Manager, said: ‘Anytime people are on Moores Mill heading towards Hazel Green, a lot of people are going down that road to Tennessee, you have to be very careful. You can go 50 miles per hour on Moores Mill and very quickly end up in an S-curve and then pull off the road. This goes for daylight and obviously when it’s dark.

Fitzgerald added that this accident is not the first to occur at this particular location on the road. He warned all drivers to slow down and be careful.
