BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -
Two collisions led to severe traffic issues on Monday morning on I-59 in Etowah County.
Authorities received a report of a man driving north in the southbound lane around 2:30 a.m. The driver struck an 18-wheeler and was killed instantly. The 18-wheeler traveled across the median and into the northbound lanes before coming to a stop.
The identity of the deceased driver has not been released. The 18-wheeler driver's condition was not released, but Attalla's police chief, Dennis Walker, says he was not taken to the hospital.
The second collision happened after police had arrived on the scene. An Attalla officer's car was struck after a Toyota Camry hit an oil slick and slid into the police car.
A Ford Ranger then hit the same slick and struck the Camry. The officer was injured and transported to the hospital. Chief Walker says the officer will be out for a couple of days. The conditions of the people in the Camry and Ranger have not been released.
