ST. CLAIR COUNTY —Authorities have identified the woman killed in an early morning accident on Tuesday, August 10, as 49-year-old Adger resident Amanda Parsons. Parsons was killed when her 2004 Ford Explorer was struck by a 2013 Infiniit QX56 driven by Michelle Leavitt of Texas.
“Parsons had been involved in a separate crash that left her vehicle disabled in the roadway moments before the collision,” Alabama state trooper Justin O’Neal said in a prepared statement. “She was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, which occurred on Interstate 59 near the 164 mile marker, approximately five miles west of Ashville.”
The fatal accident occurred around 1:36 a.m. Tuesday. State troopers continue to investigate the incident, O’Neal said.
