Huntsville Post – A two-vehicle crash at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 11, has claimed the life of a Boaz woman. Morgan Haley Powell, 23, was fatally injured when the 2005 Nissan Altima she was operating collided with a 2017 Freightliner Cascadia operated by Barry Jerome Smart, 63, of Albertville.
Smart lost control of his vehicle due to a weight shift, crossed the centerline, and collided with Powell’s vehicle. Powell was pronounced dead at the scene. Smart was transported to a nearby hospital for treatment. The crash occurred on Hustleville Road near Alabama 75, approximately five miles north of Albertville.
Nothing is further as Alabama Law Enforcement Agency’s (ALEA) Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate.
