Decatur, AL (September 15, 2021) – Two teenaged brothers have lost their lives as a result of a motor vehicle accident in Decatur on Friday evening. Just before midnight on September 10, emergency crews were requested on-site at a crash on Old Moulton Road.
Reports from the Decatur Police Department show that a 16-year-old teen was driving a vehicle south on Old Moulton Road with his 13-year-old brother. As the vehicle entered the 4000 block of the roadway, it collided with a second vehicle.
The impact of the crash sent both vehicles off the road.
The two brothers suffered fatal injuries in the accident. Authorities pronounced both victims deceased at the scene.
The driver of the second vehicle, a 47-year-old man from Danville, was transported to Decatur Morgan Hospital for care. At this time, the incident remains under investigation.
