Two people were injured after a two-car accident occurred on Alabama 77 this morning.
According to the Department of Transportation, a vehicle pulled into the path of an 18-wheeler that was hauling a 43,000 pound metal strip. Officials have said that both vehicles were totaled.

Truck accidents can cause serious injury because of they are very large and difficult to maneuver. Our thoughts are with the injured as they recover.
