Traffic was slowed in both directions on the busy highway as officers worked to attend to the needs of the injured passengers and traffic came to a complete standstill as the Haynes LifeFlight helicopter descended directly onto U.S. Highway 231 during rush hour.

Nothing further is available as Alabama State Troopers continue to investigate.
