A Collision Claimed The Life Of A Covington County Woman

A head on collision between a tractor-trailer rig and a mini-van claimed the life of a Covington County woman.

State Troopers identify the victim as 61-year-old Polly Ann Peterson of Opp.

The wreck happened about 8 a.m. this morning on Highway 84 in the town of Sanford between Opp and Andalusia.

Troopers say an 18-wheeler driven by Raymond Turner Junior of Andalusia apparently switched lanes to avoid another vehicle and slammed into an on coming mini van.

Ms. Peterson was the only occupant of the van.

Turner was not injured. No charges have been filed and the investigation is continuing.
