One Dead After Traffic Accident

A two-vehicle crash Friday afternoon in Houston County killed a Dothan man.

Authorities say just before 5 p-m Friday, 27-year-old James Bruce Tyler was speeding as he traveled Highway 231 north, just south of Dothan.

Investigators say he was driving a 2006 Nissan Altima when he slammed into the rear of a commercial vehicle

Tyler was pronounced dead at the scene and the driver of the other vehicle was treated for non-life threatening injuries.

Authorities say Tyler was wearing a seatbelt and alcohol is not believed to be a factor.

    What authorities FAILED to say was that the 18-wheeler had run out of gas, stopped in the right lane of the northbound 231, failed to put on hazard lights or set out any orange cones to ward oncoming traffic. You could see the gas station he just passed from the sight of the wreck. Posted speed along there is 65MPH, which when you run into the back of an idle 18-wheeler in traffic would be deadly to anyone.

    What the media failed to report is that the 18-wheeler had run out of gas (you could see the gas station he just passed from the scene of the accident), stopped in the right hand lane of the highway and failed to turn on his hazard lights or to put out orange cones around the trailer. Even 65 MPH (posted speed limit) would have killed anyone when you crash into a truck trailer sitting idle in the highway.
