Car Wreck Near Hospital

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) — Huntsville Police are investigating an early morning wreck that sent one man to the hospital.

At about 2:00 a.m., emergency crews responded to a single-vehicle wreck right next to Huntsville Hospital on Governors Drive. It appears the driver was traveling west on Governors Drive when he lost control and slammed head-on into a tree.

It took 30 minutes to free him and transport him across the street to Huntsville’s ER. We understand that alcohol may have been a factor in the crash.

At last check, the driver was listed in serious condition.
