A Moulton woman and four children were transported to area hospitals following a two-vehicle crash at Alabama 24 and County Road 217 on Thursday, according to first responders.

The driver of one of the vehicles, Amy McDaniel, 51, was transported by ambulance to Lawrence Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries, according to Greg Randolph, owner of Greg’s Ambulance Service.

He said one of the children, a 7-year-old boy, was transported to Huntsville Hospital with possible head trauma. A 13-year-old girl was also transported to Huntsville Hospital for non-life-threatening injuries, he said.

A second 7-year-old boy and a 12-year-old girl were also transported by ambulance to Decatur General Hospital, said Randolph. Their injuries were unspecified. 

Moulton Fire Chief Ryan Jolly said the five who were transported were traveling together in one of the two passenger vehicles, which collided near the intersection around 3:48 p.m.

The two east-bound lanes on AL-24 were blocked for nearly an hour as first responders worked to clear the scene. 

No injuries from the second vehicle were reported. Updates will be posted as they are received.
