WELTI — A Welti man was killed in an early morning crash Thursday after driving off an embankment along County Road 703 near Welti Falls.
An Alabama State Trooper discovered the body of mid-50s Welti resident Kenneth P. Brannan, Jr. inside the car at approximately 10 a.m. Authorities believe the crash occurred around 6 a.m. The cause of death is likely blunt force trauma, according to Cullman County Coroner Steve Rodgers.
Response crews worked for much of the morning to remove the victim from the vehicle. Motorists have been advised to avoid the area as much as possible while the work is under way.
