The crash occurred on Cobbs Ford Road at Interstate 65, approximately one-tenth of a mile west of Millbrook. The preliminary investigation indicates that the Lincoln was actively fleeing the scene of a previous crash that occurred near the intersection of Cobbs Ford Road and U.S. 82.

The accident remains under investigation by ALEA.
