CULLMAN — The man involved in an off-road accident Monday in Cullman has been identified.
The driver, John Hazard, 21, of Cullman, was found in a wooded area by officer Kyle Farmer, said Police Chief Kenny Culpepper.
Hazard apparently was driving in a wooded area in a four-wheel-drive vehicle near People's Bank along Alabama Highway 157 when he ran into a six-foot-deep ditch, police reported.
“We learned about the accident when a friend of the man called and said he had received a call from Mr. Hazard and seemed disoriented around 5:25 p.m.,” Culpepper said. “We understand he had just recently moved here from Ohio.”
Hazard was flown by MedFlight to Huntsville Hospital for treatment.
