GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. (AP) -- Alabama politicians say they'll consider drafting legislation to prevent people from riding in the backs of pickup trucks in the wake of a rollover accident near Guntersville.
Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers says it's foolish for Alabama to be one of a few states in the country allowing people to ride in the cargo bed of pickup trucks.
His comment comes after a pickup truck carrying a group of children overturned and burst into flames on a highway near Guntersville on Sunday afternoon. Everyone riding in the cab and bed of the truck was ejected and four were dead as of Tuesday.
