Victim Identified in Fatal Troy Double 18-Wheeler Wreck

A circumstantial identification has been made on the driver of an 18-wheeler who was killed Wednesday morning on Highway 231 North in Troy.

Pike County Coroner Jerry Williams identified the victim as 56-year-old Debra Ann Fields of Defuniak Springs, Florida.

Fields was driving a 2005 Freightliner tractor-trailer when it collided with another 18-wheeler driven by 26-year-old Dusty Lee Scott Conner of Troy.

Conner was taken to Troy Regional Hospital where he was treated and released.

While Fields' family has been notified of the circumstantial identification, the Alabama Department of Forensic Science will provide a final and positive id at a later time.

Sgt. Benny Scarborough of the Troy Police Department says an investigation is ongoing.
