Birmingham, AL (October 30, 2021) – A 25-year-old woman was killed when the driver of the car in which she was riding lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a building in the Fairfield community of Birmingham on Friday, October 29th.
The Jefferson County Coroner’s Office said that the woman was a passenger in a car driving on the 1600yh block of Warrior Road when, for reasons still under investigation, the driver lost control and struck a building.
The driver and the passenger were both transported by paramedics to the Princeton Baptist Medical Center where the passenger, a 25-year-old woman, died.
The cause of the crash is under investigation.
Our thoughts are with the injured victim and their family at this time. We hope for their full recovery.
Passenger Fatalities in Alabama
As indicated by data from the Alabama Department of Transportation, in 2019, there were a total of 850 fatal car accidents throughout the state that resulted in the deaths of 950 people. Although each accident is thoroughly investigated, the majority of serious and fatal collisions occur due to driver negligence. These careless drivers neglect to follow basic driving laws and, consequently, cause accidents that often have disastrous consequences.
There is nothing more heartbreaking than losing someone you love in an Alabama car accident. This is particularly true if they were killed in an accident that was not their fault. Moving forward after a fatal crash might seem impossible as you struggle with the fact that your life will never be the same. A fatal car accident can take so much from your family in a matter of seconds.
