Multiple Vehicle Accident On Interstate 65 Northbound

Emergency responders dispatched by Cullman e911 are arriving in the area of Mile Marker 290/291 on Interstate 65.

This location is just south of the Colony/Hanceville exit. 911 callers are reporting a multiple vehicle wreck in the northbound lanes.

Traffic is significantly slowed around the wreck site (15-20 mph with one lane open). Southbound traffic is unaffected.

Motorists are already backed up over one mile leading back into Blount County.

Personnel from Dodge City Fire & Rescue, the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office, and Cullman EMS are arriving at the location.

One person has been transported to Cullman Regional via ambulance.

A Trooper should arrive shortly to begin an investigation.

We just spoke with Dodge City Fire & Rescue Chief Matt Weaver out on I-65:

“We’ve got one lane open northbound. Traffic is slowed up pretty good around this wreck, but folks can get through. EMS has transported one patient, and we have some help from responders from Blount County (which we appreciate). This will take a little bit of time for us to clear up.”
