ALICEVILLE, Ala. — Alabama State Troopers are identifying three people who died in a one-car wreck near Aliceville on Friday.
Three Aliceville residents died after being thrown from the Dodge Durango. They are 41-year-old Jeffery Lee Armstrong, 42-year-old Horace James Armstrong and 43-year-old Joe Knox, troopers said.
The car veered off Alabama 32 southwest of Aliceville, struck a ditch and flipped several times. The three men died before they could be taken to a hospital, troopers told news outlets.
The driver was 31-year-old Aliceville resident Richard Amstrong. He and another passenger were injured and taken to University Hospital in Birmingham, troopers said.
Speed and alcohol use appear to be factors in the crash, authorities said. No one was wearing a seat belt.
