VIDEO: Crash on I-65 SB caught on dashboard camera

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - A crash on I-65 southbound near the Cobbs Ford Road exit, which caused major delays for morning commuters, was caught on dash camera.

In the dashboard camera provided by James Jefferies, Senior Director of IT Development at Raycom Media, you can see a red car in the far-left lane appear to hydroplane. The red car and another vehicle then collide before coming to a stop on the opposite sides of the interstate.

Google maps reported the crash happened south of the Cobbs Ford Road exit. We have reached out to officials for more information on this crash. There has been no word on injuries at this time.

When driving during rainy weather, AAA offers the following tips:

  • Avoid cruise control- While this feature works great in dry conditions when used in wet conditions the chance of losing control increases.
  • Slow down and leave room- Slowing down during wet weather driving can be critical to reducing a car’s chance of hydroplaning.
