2nd deadly crash on I-65 Monday involves child

AUTAUGA CO., AL (WSFA) - The Alabama Department of Public Safety is confirming the second deadly crash of the day along Interstate 65 in Autauga County. The victim was an 8-year-old boy.

Investigators say the fatal crash happened around 4:00pm at mile marker 195, approximately five miles from the Verbena exit.

The automobile apparently blew out a tire, causing the driver to lose control. The vehicle flipped several times.

The child's name has not been released.

The first fatal crash of the day occurred a short distance beyond the northbound exit of 186 at Pine Level. That crash, between a car and 18-wheeler, occurred just before 5:00am.

No identities or a cause have been determined that crash, either.
