Samson police, fire, and rescue all responded immediately. Alabama State Troopers are investigating.

Wrecks at this intersection are all too common.

In March of this year, two Hoover teens were killed at the same intersection, on their way home from spring break.

19-year-old Om Ashutosh Tamhane and 18-year-old Madhav Praveen were both pronounced dead at the scene.

On a post about today’s accident, numerous citizens that live in the area called for something to be done before another accident happens with deadly consequences.

The roadway is a popular route for people going to and from the beach. From March until September, you will find cars lined up at the intersection each weekend most of the day.

State leaders indicated in March that significant changes were on the way for the intersection. So far a new sign in the area is the only change.
