CULLMAN COUNTY, Ala. – Traffic on Interstate 65 South remains stalled, or slow, through much of Cullman County due to two wrecks that happened about 5 a.m.

One of the wrecks was deadly.  Both wrecks happened between mile markers 293 and 294, according to Alabama State Troopers.  Crews closed I-65 in this area, and opened one lane after 7:30 a.m.

Drivers headed south on the Interstate have been stuck in traffic for quite a while.

If you’re heading this way, please consider an alternate route such as Highway 31.
