One woman injured in single-vehicle wreck on Chapman Mountain

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. –  One person is in the hospital after a single-vehicle wreck in Huntsville. The wreck  happened just after midnight on Highway 72 East on Chapman Mountain.

Emergency crews arrived to find an SUV slammed head-on into the side of the mountain.

The driver told officers she was hit from behind, which caused her to lose control. However, police say they don’t believe another vehicle was involved. Investigators say the woman left the road several times before she hit the mountain.

She was taken to Huntsville Hospital with non life-threatening injuries.

One lane of the highway was closed for about 20 minutes. It has since reopened.
