Man Killed In Crash On Cecil Ashburn

Huntsville Police are investigating a fatal crash on Cecil Ashburn at Avalon Drive.  Police say the victim was Arael Hernandez-Roblero.

Hernandez-Roblero was a Huntsville resident.  He was 22 years old.

Police tell us two cars were involved, one heading east and one west.  Police say the westbound Pontiac Grand Am lost control, crossed the center line and crashed into a Honda, hitting it on the passenger side door.

The cause of the crash is still under investigation.

This is the same place where a wreck claimed the lives of two young women last December.  Andrea Morrow and Britney Mowry died in that crash.  Andrea's twin sister, Amber, was critically injured.  She came home in March after spending months of rehabilitation at the Shepherd Center in Atlanta.

On WHNT News 19's Facebook Page, people recounted their own traffic incidents on the same stretch of road.

Some suggest a traffic light to force people to slow down, while others say the guard rail and high brush block the view and should be trimmed.

In January, WHNT News 19's Steve Johnson took action to highlight the dangerous stretch of road in a "Driving You Crazy" report. He discussed the situation with city officials. No action has been taken as of yet.
