AUBURN, AL. – According to an online news story reported at wtvm.com, one person was life-flighted from the scene after a vehicle wreck that occurred in Auburn, Alabama. Another person was reportedly transported from the scene by ambulance. No one involved in the accident has yet been identified.*

The collision took place on the evening of Monday, May 6, but the report from WTVM does not provide an exact time of the accident. Authorities say that two vehicles somehow crashed into each other that day at the intersection of U.S. Highway 280 and North College Street. The news report did not say what direction the vehicles had been traveling or how the accident happened.

Descriptions of the two vehicles were not provided in the report. However, photos from the scene posted to the WTVM website show that one of the vehicles was a white SUV. The SUV is pictured being loaded onto a tow truck. The make and model of the SUV is not discernable due to the significant damage to the front end. The second vehicle is not pictured.

WTVM reports that at least two people were injured in the wreck. One of the victims was transported to East Alabama Medical Center via ambulance, and medical crews summoned Life Flight to fly the other victim to Piedmont Columbus Medical Center. The two persons were not identified, and their current conditions were not reported. 

It is not clear from the WTVM report if anyone else was involved in the wreck or if anyone else sustained injuries. Authorities are still investigating the collision to determine the cause.
