An accident Friday afternoon on Alabama 21 in Munford resulted in the driver and passenger being airlifted to a Birmingham hospital.
A Honda Accord appears to have left the roadway, gone across at least 300 feet of grass before crashing into a ditch. The driver and passenger, neither immediately identified, were both airlifted to University Hospital in Birmingham via Lifesaver helicopter.
The car had a Cleburne County High School license plate on it.
Three accidents occurred Thursday night.
The first was at about 9 p.m. on Alabama 77 near Idalia Road. It was a one-vehicle accident involving a 1997 Honda driven by Melissa Date, 50, of Sylacauga. The vehicle turned over in the course of the accident.
Date was injured in the accident and transported to Citizens Baptist Medical Center in Talladega. No information on her condition was available Friday.
The next accident was about 40 minutes later on Old Birmingham Highway in Sylacauga. Donna Epperson, 61, of Sylacauga, was driving a 2005 Nissan that collided head-on with a 2001 Dodge driven by Jennifer Whetstone, 32, also of Sylacauga. George Hernandez, 32, was a passenger in Whetstone’s vehicle. All three people were injured in this accident.
At about 10:10 p.m. Thursday, troopers were called to another one-vehicle accident, this one on Alabama 21 just south of Oxford. The vehicle was a 1999 Nissan, driven by Jessica Roberts, 21, of Talladega.
All four accidents were still under investigation by Alabama State Troopers Friday evening. No information on the conditions of any of the injured was available.
