Four people were injured, one of which was airlifted to Huntsville Hospital, following a two-vehicle crash at the intersection of U.S. 31 and Nanceford Road Thursday night.

Public Information Officer Lt. Justin Barley said Sarah E. Way, 19, of Hartselle was airlifted to Huntsville Hospital from the wreck scene. She was a passenger in a 1998 Honda Civic driven by Michael Douglas Hill Jr., 19, of Decatur.

Hill, another juvenile passenger and the driver of a 2004 Ford F-150, Jeremy Daniel Miller, 39, of Hartselle, were all transported to the hospital by ambulance.

Barley said the Honda Civic was attempting to turn left from U.S. 31 southbound while the F-150 was traveling northbound. The two vehicles collided in the intersection at 8:20 p.m.

After the crash, the F-150 then struck a utility pole. Hartselle Utilities electric superintendent Jonathan Hampton said the some of the traffic lights were hanging low and were damaged.

“We got the traffic light back up and put it in flashing mode until the city could get its traffic light contractor out to fix it this morning,” Hampton said.
