An Alabama man died Saturday from injuries sustained during a multiple-vehicle crash earlier in the week.
Alabama Law Enforcement Agency reports that Michael L. McCants, 39, died Saturday at Vaughan Regional Medical Center, four days after being involved in a multiple-vehicle crash Tuesday morning at 9 a.m. on Alabama 22 near Dallas County 65, one mile north of Selma.
McCants was critically injured when the 2014 Chevrolet Impala that he drove collided head-on with a 2020 Honda HR-V driven by Linda N. Cottle, 72, of Tyler. After the initial impact, the Chevrolet left the roadway, entered a parking lot, and collided head-on with a 2015 Nissan Pathfinder driven by Ralph B. Wilkinson, 56, of Selma.
McCants and Cottle were both transported to Vaughan Hospital for treatment. McCants succumbed to his injuries while at the hospital and was pronounced dead on Saturday.
No further details are available as Troopers with ALEA Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate the accident.
