2 men killed in weekend wreck | News
Two men were killed in a wreck in Colbert County early Sunday morning.
A Ford Focus was traveling along Colbert Co. 77, six miles south of Muscle Shoals, around 1 a.m. when the vehicle ran off the road, struck a culvert, and landed upside down in a small stream.
The driver, 22-year-old Stephen Wade Mitchell, and passenger Jesse Eugene Ayers, 19, were both pronounced dead at the scene.
The scene was obstructed by brush and was not discovered until a passerby spotted it Sunday morning.
The county coroner said both men were killed instantly. State troopers said that neither man was wearing a seat belt and that speed was a factor in the fatal wreck.
