Two Vehicle Crash Injures Eufaula Men

Abbeville — A two vehicle crash Thursday night in Henry County injured two Eufaula men.

Saio Algermany Strothers, 26, of Eufaula was driving a 1994 Lexus when he collided with a 2006 Chevrolet driven by Jeffrey Dent Richards, 51, of Eufaula.

The initial investigation indicates that Mr. Strothers was traveling north on US 431 over the posted speed limit when he slammed into the rear of Mr. Richards’ truck that was also traveling north on US 431.

Strothers was transported to Southeast Alabama Medical Center by Haleburg Rescue and treated for non- life threatening injuries.

Richards was airlifted to Southeast Alabama Medical Center where he is listed in stable condition.

Alcohol is believed to be a factor and Troopers continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the crash.

    I understand that it is a very upsetting situation to have an accident occur involving someone you may know. I know the driver of the Lexus very well and I am not making any excuses for his actions but maybe you need to take into consideration that maybe he was heading to take care of a family emergency and that he too is very sorry for the misfortunate accident. He was not a drunk driver and he did not just walk away. He had very serious injuries also and is blessed to still be alive. He is a great person who did not mean to harm anyone. All I have to say is that Mr. Strothers is an outstanding person and although you seem to think that everyone should be perfect, we all make mistakes and I'm starting to think that merely being sorry is no longer permitted. I too hope and pray that your friend driving the other vehicle will be okay an that we all can get through this situation in due time.

    Cheryl, I am glad to know that there are concerned drivers on the road. I too have called the police more than once and reported a dangerous driver on the road and always wondered the outcome of my call. I don't know if the law enforcement agencys are so understaffed that they did not respond to your husbands call, but It seems odd that I travel that road often and always see State Troopers, Abbeville PD or Sherrif cruiers on that streach of road. Maybe this needs looking into! The man driving that truck is our friend. He is a great father, husband and son. Please pray for his full recovery! Thank you.

    The Lexus passed my husband on 431 speeding excessively and passing cars left and right. He knew the situation was dangerous and called 911 to warn the police. No one arrived until it was too late for the driver of the pickup. Isn't that the way it goes? The drunk driver always walks away and the innocent person is always the victim?
