Automobile Accident in Ryland Area on May 8, 2008 at Approximately 1:45 PM

An accident occurred on Highway 72 (West bound lane) and Ryland Pike at approximately 1:45 pm today. The automobile flipped over and landed upside down in the ditch. There were injuries involved. The road was wet and slippery when the accident took place. The Ryland Pike merge lane to Highway 72 becomes extremely dangerous when accidents occur here because the merge from Ryland curves blindly around the rocky outcropping. Please always take extra caution in this area so as not to rear-end someone stopped here due to accidents or backed up traffic. This accident occurred during the same time many areas of Northeastern Alabama were under tornado watches and warnings. At the writing of this article, the tornado warning sirens are currently sounding at 2:44 PM.
