Alabama State Troopers said Sandra Dee Richardson, 58, was a passenger in a 2015 Honda Accord, driven by Melissa Carol Merritt, 64 of Jasper, Tennessee.

Troopers said Merritt’s vehicle was traveling east in the westbound lane of U.S. 72 and collided head-on with a 2015 Honda Accord.

Richardson was pronounced dead at the scene. Both drivers were transported to the hospital for their injuries.

State troopers said the wreck occurred three miles west of Scottsboro.

State troopers continue to investigate the accident.
