Three people die in two Houston County traffic accidents
Three people were killed Friday in two separate motor vehicle collisions in Houston County.
Two were pronounced dead at a Dothan hospital after a SUV crossed the median and struck an RV on U.S. 231 near the Florida line.
Coroner Robert Byrd identified the victims as Wyatt Hardy, 29, and his sister, Amanda Hardy. She was 31. Both are from the Ariton area.
Initial indications are the Chevrolet Suburban they were riding in struck a trailer in the southbound lanes before crossing the median and striking an RV. Both of those vehicles overturned.
Byrd said passengers, including a 10-year old child, were also in the vehicle. He had not current information on their condition.
In the other wreck, a vehicle left the roadway and overturned along County Road 75 near Pansey, ejecting the driver.
He is identified as Christopher McClenny, 33, of Cowarts
Initial reports are that speed may be a factor.
