GOOD HOPE —
At approximately 10:20 a.m. Wednesday a vehicle careened off Interstate 65 in Cullman County landing upside down in a ditch — injuring two adults and a four-month-old child.
With local roads slick due to rainfall, a 2006 Kia car driven by 18-year-old Jefferson County resident Ashlyn Stephens ran off the Interstate 65 northside ramp at the 304 exit in Good Hope and flipped nearly 20-feet down, eventually resting upside down in the ditch between the ramp and a nearby access road.
In addition to Stephens, 20-year-old Hunter Stanley and four-month-old Brayden Stanley, all from Morris in Jefferson County, were injured and transported from the scene.
Authorities say all parties involved were taken to Cullman Regional Medical Center for treatment. Details on their conditions were not available by deadline of this article.
Year-to-date, the Alabama Department of Public Safety reports 12,309 accidents with injury statewide, up slightly from 12,269 by this point in 2011.
