January 19, 2019

GENESEE COUNTY, AL. – Officers with the Genesee County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene of a two-vehicle wreck on Judge Road and Route 77 in Genesee County, Alabama, according to an online news report from thedailynewsonline.com. It appears only one person was injured in the accident, and the cause of the accident is not yet confirmed.* 

The accident happened on the afternoon of January 15, but it is not clear what time that afternoon. Sometime before 4 p.m., two vehicles somehow collided at the intersection of Judge Road and Route 77 in Genesee County. 

The cause of the crash has not been confirmed, but deputies believed it might have occurred because one of the drivers ran a stop sign at the intersection. The makes and models of the vehicles were not reported. 

One person was injured in the accident, and emergency crews transported him to United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia, Alabama, for treatment. The extent of his injuries is not known, and he has not been identified. An unidentified deputy at the scene told reporters that the man had to be freed from his vehicle. 

“There was an extrication of one of the drivers, but it was only because his feet were stuck behind the pedals,” the deputy said. “His legs weren’t crushed or anything like that.”

No passengers were in this man’s vehicle. Two people were in the other vehicle, and it does not appear they were injured. They have also not been identified. The investigation is ongoing, and no citations have been issued at this time.
