AL- Al.com writes that an 11-month-old baby died in a car accident earlier this week on U.S. 31. The crash also injured three others. Athens Police responded to the scene. Responders rushed the small child to the hospital, but she was declared dead on arrival. According to the police chief, the baby was traveling in a properly installed car seat at the time of the accident.*
The collision involved three vehicles that collided at the intersection of Elm Street and U.S. 31.
Police have not reported the cause of the crash. Three other individuals also suffered injuries in the accident. The conditions of the other victims are not currently known.
Intersection crashes often involve left-turning vehicles or T-bone accidents in which a car strikes another car on its side. Left-turn crashes are some of the most common on the road because when a car makes a left turn, the driver has to gauge the speed of oncoming vehicles before crossing in their path. Some safety experts advise avoiding left turns altogether.
