An early morning wreck on Beltline Road and Highway 31 in Decatur sent two women to the hospital. Decatur police say the crash happened after a driver ignored a traffic signal and slammed into another car with two women inside. Fire and rescue crews used the jaws of life to remove the two passengers.
One person was taken to Huntsville Hospital and the other was taken to Decatur General Hospital, both with non-life threatening injuries. The driver of the other car was arrested and taken into custody. At this point, police believe that alcohol was a factor in the wreck. They’re continuing to investigate.
