A Birmingham man was killed early Monday morning in a two-vehicle collision along Interstate 59 in Springville.
St. Clair County Coroner Dennis Russell identified the victim as Harvey Russell Collins Jr., 80. The victim died of blunt force trauma.
Russell said the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
He said it appeared that the driver of a tractor-trailer traveling south along I-59 crossed the median and struck the victim’s SUV head-on. Nobody else was in the victim’s vehicle.
The Alabama State Troopers Birmingham Post said the accident happened at about 6:10 a.m.
Troopers said the other driver, identified as Dale Edward Monson, 66, of Federal Way, Wash., was transported to University Hospital in Birmingham.
The accident is still under investigation by the Alabama State Trooper’s Post in Birmingham.
