Darron Paul Ellis, 37, of Troy was injured in the accident and was transported to Troy Regional Medical Center for treatment of injuries he sustained.

Ellis was later transferred to Baptist East Hospital in Montgomery.

He was driving a 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe and had two passengers who did not receive injuries.

Ellis’ current condition is unknown at this time.

Troy Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Benny Scarbrough said he did not have additional information other than what had been released about Ellis’ condition.

The driver of the second vehicle, Kendra Lynn Steele, 20, of Fort Rucker, was also transported to Troy Regional Medical Center for treatment.

According to Steele, her injuries were minor.

“I had a couple of bruises and a few cuts on my knees and hands. Bruising on my chest and a headache. That’s about it, though. I’m fine, just in some pain,” Steele said.

She was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Cobalt and there were no passengers in Steele’s vehicle.

“My car is totally totaled. The windshield was smashed and the front of the car was smashed in a bit. I don’t know about any other part of my car, but what I could see without twisting around,” Steele said.

According to Troy Police, the collision is still under investigation.
