Alabama State Troopers and the Lee County, Ala., coroner are investigating an accident that happened Saturday resulting in the death of an Alabama man. A Loganville woman was involved in the crash.
According to the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer, Rachel West of Loganville, Ga., was driving a 2007 Ford Fusion at about 6:46 p.m. May 19 in Smiths Station, Ala. when it became involved in a collision with a 2007 Ford Focus driven by Roger W. Williamson, 59, of Smiths Station. Williamson died at the scene. A passenger in the car, Gloria Williamson, was lifeflighted by helicopter to the Medical Center in Columbus where her condition is listed as “unsatisfactory.”
Lee County Coroner Bill Harris reportedly told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that it appeared that Williamson’s vehicle was “hit with a lot of force” when the vehicle West was driving entered an intersection in Smiths Station and struck Williamson’s vehicle. None of the occupants in either car where thrown from the vehicle. Harris told the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that alcohol is not suspected to be a factor in the incident.
West reportedly received minor injuries and refused treatment at the scene.
