MARSHALL COUNTY, Ala. (WHNT) — The Marshall County Coroner has identified an Albertville teen killed in a crash Saturday afternoon.
In a post on social media, the coroner’s office said at around 3:45 p.m. Saturday it responded to a bridge near the 4000 block of Hustleville Road in Albertville in reference to a single-vehicle crash.
The coroner’s office said 18-year-old Connor Parker, a native of Albertville, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) said Parker was fatally injured when the Chevrolet Silverado he was driving left the roadway, struck a guardrail and traveled into a concrete railing before sliding into a creek. The agency said the 18-year-old was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
The coroner said the office’s chaplain service provided assistance to those on the scene and the family.
ALEA said Alabama State Troopers are investigating the incident. The coroner said Albertville Fire, Asbury Fire, Alder Springs Fire, Guntersville Fire, Marshall Health Systems EMS, and the Marshall County EMA all assisted in the incident
