Cullman County Corner Jeremy L. Kilpatrick has named Kevin William Crotty (32) of Hanceville as one of the deceased motorists in last night’s tragic fatality collision near Cold Springs along Highway 69.

Emergency responders from Cold Springs and Arkadelphia Fire Departments have responded this evening to a request from Cullman e911.

They are arriving at a location near Smith Lake Dam along the 16000 block of Highway 69 southwest of the Cold Springs community.

They are working a two-car, head-on collision with both vehicles fully involved in flames. It is believed at least one occupant is entrapped.

Deputies with the Cullman County Sheriffs Office, medical personnel from Cullman EMS, and an Alabama State Trooper have just arrived at the location.

Cullman County Coroner Jeremy L. Kilpatrick has been summoned to the scene. It appears that one occupant of each vehicle is deceased.

There is total road blockage on Highway 69. Motorists will need to avoid this area, and understand it will likely be hours before full traffic flow is restored.

Personnel from Cold Springs and Arkadelphia are currently engaged in a full firefight to extinguish the blaze engulfing both vehicles.

Prayers and positive thoughts go out to everyone involved in this incident.
