Pinckard, AL (WTVY)- One person was life-flighted to a hospital Saturday morning following a traffic accident in Pinckard. The collision occurred in Dale County, about a mile north of the U.S. 231 bridge at Midland City.

An officer at the scene said there were no other serious injuries in the three-vehicle accident.

Traffic was slowed—and sometimes came to a standstill----until the wreckage could be removed. By noon, most of the debris was gone from the roadway and traffic returned to a more normal flow.

Another wreck on U.S. 231 this week left three people dead when multiple vehicles including an 18-wheeler collided north of Ariton, about 25 miles north of Saturday’s wreck scene.

The condition of the person injured wasn’t immediately known.
