BIRMINGHAM — A 19-year-old man was killed in a crash that occurred in Birmingham on Sunday, September 4.
According to the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office, Misael Reyes, of Midfield, was the driver and lone occupant of his Honda Civic involved in a single-vehicle wreck.
Reyes was traveling north on Interstate 65 when, for unknown reasons, his vehicle left the roadway, struck the shoulder concrete barrier, crossed over the northbound lanes, struck the median concrete barrier, and came to rest.
“The decedent was initially found by family who were searching for him after he did not return home from work the evening before,” Chief Deputy Coroner Bill Yates stated.
Birmingham Police Department is investigating the circumstances surrounding the crash.
