LACEY’S SPRING, Ala. – A two vehicle wreck on Hwy 231 is causing southbound traffic to be diverted.

Authorities are working to clear the crash that happened around 4:30 a.m., just south of Gasoline Alley on Hwy 231.

Morgan County Sheriff’s deputies say that one of the vehicles was travelling north in the southbound lane and clipped the second vehicle.

When the two vehicles collided, one tipped on its side causing the driver to be trapped for about 30 minutes.

Emergency crews transported both of the drivers to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Deputies are still investigating the crash at this time, but said the preliminary investigation indicated that alcohol may have been a factor.

At this time both southbound lanes of Hwy 231 are being diverted onto Old Hwy 231.

At times the northbound side was down to one lane, but it has since been reopened.
