BIRMINGHAM — The man who was killed early Saturday, April 20, after a car had a head-on collision with a tractor-trailer on Interstate 459, has been identified.
Jefferson County Coroner Bill Yates said Kendrick Lee Campbell, 31, of Tuscaloosa, died after the crash near the Highway 280 exit.
Alabama State Troopers responded to the accident at 5:15 a.m. Investigators said a black Chevrolet Camaro was traveling southbound in the northbound lane when it hit the commercial truck. The driver of the tractor-trailer had minor injuries and was taken to Grandview Medical Center for treatment.
State Troopers said Campbell was the only person in the car.
Yates said dispatchers had received several calls of a wrong-way driver leading up to the crash. Those reports came from Interstate 65, Highway 280 and I-459.
