Alabama's public safety director hit in DUI wreck

SELMA, Ala. (AP) - A car driven by Alabama's public safety director was struck by another driver, who was arrested for driving under the influence.

State Public Safety spokeswoman Martha Earnhardt said Col. Chris Murphy had been at the state trooper training academy in Selma on

Tuesday to teach a class. He had just left Selma on U.S. 80 to return to Montgomery when a driver veered into his lane and struck his state car about 2:30 p.m. Neither driver was injured.

But she said the driver of the other vehicle was charged with DUI.

The driver's age and hometown were not immediately available Wednesday.
