A 12-year-old Tuscaloosa boy was killed Tuesday, June 12, when the 2000 Ford Explorer he was riding in left the road, slid down a grassy slope, and hit a tree. The one-vehicle incident happened at about 2:45 p.m. between mile marker 21 and mile marker 22 on Highway 86 East between Carrollton and Gordo. The driver and 3 other minors were also injured in the crash and were transported to DCH Regional Medical Center.
The 12-year-old was extricated from the car by the fire department and taken to the closest hospital, Pickens County Medical Center in Carrollton, where he soon died.
