Authorities have released the name of a man killed in a wreck on Highway 9 just north of Cedar Bluff, Alabama during the severe storms last Thursday.
A 2014 Chevrolet collided with an 18-wheeler at around 7:15 p.m. that night near County Road 51 in the Farill community.
66–year old Gary Adkins of Cedar Bluff was killed.
Another occupant in that vehicle was transported for treatment of unspecified injuries.
According to witnesses wet road conditions as a result of the heavy rain likely played a role in the fatal crash.
