HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – A person is dead following a fatal wreck in north Huntsville. Huntsville Police say another person is in critical condition.
Madison County Deputy Coroner Tyler Berryhill confirmed that 31-year-old Marvin Jackson died in the crash.
Police say the single-vehicle wreck happened before midnight Thursday on Pulaski Pike, just north of Winchester Road.
Investigators say the car was traveling north when Jackson lost control and slammed the car into a utility pole. Police believe high speed could be a factor.
Emergency crews had to free the female passenger, who was rushed to the hospital.
Huntsville Police closed Pulaski Pike from Winchester to Cedar Point Drive to work the scene.
