Three die in weekend accidents

Three people were killed in three separate traffic accidents on Cullman County roads this past weekend, Coroner Gary Murphree said.

Lily Danielle Brown, 24, of Holly Pond; J.T. Campbell, 85, of Logan and Steven Allen Linscott, 45, of Hoover died in separate wrecks Saturday, bringing this year’s death toll from traffic accidents in Cullman County to at least 10. Brown was pronounced dead at the scene at 6:14 a.m. after a single-vehicle wreck on County Road 109 near Bremen. She apparently lost control of the 2005 KIA she was driving, and the vehicle overturned, Murphree said.

According to accident reports filed by Alabama State Troopers, there were no passengers in the car Brown was driving.

Campbell died from injuries he suffered in a two-vehicle accident just after 1 p.m. on U.S. Highway 278 about five miles west of Cullman. He was taken to Woodland Medical Center for treatment, where he died about an hour later, Murphree said.
