We've been seeing some radical weather lately. This rare winter storm has been wreaking havoc in our state, and especially on the highways.
Traffic in the areas has been at a standstill, even leaving people to walk the interstate in search of snacks and water to make it through the night. Some were lucky enough to hit the road with a full tank of gas and a phone charger, but not all of them.
Our Montgomery car accident lawyers understand that the freak storm has already been blamed for close to 15 fatalities. According to USA TODAY, At least 9 of those people died in traffic collisions. In Alabama, where freezing rain made driving perilous, at least five people were killed in weather-related traffic accidents Tuesday, state Department of Public Safety spokesman Sgt. Steve Jarrett said. The arctic blast crippling much of the deep South has prompted six states to declare emergencies and brought criticism on the National Weather Service and state and local governments. Alabama was one of those states under a state of emergency.
