TUSCALOOSA, AL. – According to an online news story published at whnt.com, officials in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, have identified the two men killed January 12 in a multi-vehicle crash. The other people injured in the crash have still not been identified, and the investigation is ongoing.*

Sometime on January 12, four vehicles were involved in a wreck in Tuscaloosa. It is still not clear what time the crash happened or on what street the crash took place.

Lt. Teena Richardson, spokesperson for the Tuscaloosa Police Department, said officers responding to the accident were able to smell alcohol inside the F-150. Officers also recovered a bottle of vodka from between the legs of the driver of the F-150 at the scene of the accident. 

The drivers of the F-150 and the Mustang died in the wreck, according to officers. Officials have now identified them as 33-year-old Wesley Worsham, of Knoxville, Tennessee (F-150 driver) and 29-year-old Demetris Sterling Johnson, of Tuscaloosa (Mustang driver).
