Fatal Car Accident in Bay Minette

Posted by David Merrell On March - 13 - 2012

    Amy Turner Kreis was killed in a car accident in Bay Minette today. The accident occurred at about 7:15 AM 3 miles north of Bay Minette on Highway 59. It was a single vehicle crash so no one else was hurt. Kreis was driving a 2008 Nissan Sentra that veered off the road and over turned. She was ejected out of the vehicle. It is not known if she was wearing her seat belt or not at this time. She was pronounced dead in route to USA Medical Center. State Troopers are still investigating the accident.

    Wearing a seat beat is mandatory in Alabama. Failure to do so will result in a ticket. Every year one out of every five drivers are involved in a car accident. Car crashes are the leading cause of death in people 44 years of age or younger. About 35,000 people are killed each year from automobile accidents. It is estimated that half of those deaths could be prevented by using a seat belt.

    So sorry for her life lost; I know her family is heart broken; So may we take this time to tell these young people to slow down; and take it easy; I see every day after school High School students racing to get where they are going; Mom and Dad cannot be there 24 seven; So if you are old enough to drive a car; then take the responsibality to treat it like a machine; That it is; It can be fun; but it can also kill; Just like medication! It has to be taken at the right time and right amount!
