The one accident took place Aug. 2 at about 9:30 a.m. at the intersection of Heath and Cherry Streets. The two-vehicle crash involved a motorcycle and a truck.
LifeSaver helicopter landed at the Alabama School for the Deaf Field and airlifted the driver of the motorcycle to Birmingham, Goodenough said. No information on the driver’s condition was available.
The first two fire calls were both on Aug. 3, just after 1 a.m. on Nimitz Ave. and just after 11:30 a.m. on Hobson Street. The former was a laundry room fire which remained under investigation Thursday. The latter was a cooking fire limited to one container that was put out by the time firefighters arrived.
The third fire call was to Old Shocco Road. Again, the fire was out by the time firefighters arrived, but they did help clear the smoke, Goodenough said.
One of the vehicle fires occurred just before 9 p.m. Aug. 4 at Angel Lynn Mobile Home Park. According to Talladega police, the owner of the 2002 Cadillac Deville in question had argued with a neighbor earlier, before seeing his car on fire. A gas can was found next to the vehicle.
Goodenough said the case remained under investigation by Talladega police.
