TALLADEGA – A two-vehicle accident on the 275 Bypass Friday did not result in any serious injury in spite of the vehicles getting flipped over a guard rail.

According to Talladega Police Chief Alan Watson, David Perkins, 44, of Talladega was driving east bound on the 275 Bypass in a 2002 Ford F-150 pickup.

Kathy Pitts, 58, also of Talladega, was crossing the bypass in a 1990 Oldsmobile 98 when the struck Perkins’ vehicle.

The truck hit the guard rail and flipped over.

In addition to the two drivers, each vehicle was also carrying one passenger. Neither of the drivers nor the passengers had any visible injuries, and all refused transport to the emergency room.

This is the second accident at this intersection in three days, Watson said. On Dec. 26, another two-vehicle accident also put a car over the guard rail. Three people were transported to the emergency room by private vehicle, but none appeared seriously injured.

The guard rail is now completely down, and the state Department of Transportation has been contacted about replacing it. Until then, drivers are advised to be extremely cautious there.
