An Alabama teen critically injured in a motorcycle accident earlier this week has died, state troopers said.

The two-vehicle crash occurred at approximately 12:40 p.m. Tuesday, and claimed the life of a Vinemont, Alabama, teen.

The 18-year-old was critically injured when the 2007 Suzuki motorcycle that the teen was operating struck a 2013 Honda Odyssey driven by Brian E Gott, 50, of Lexington.

After the initial impact, the Suzuki left the roadway and struck a guardrail.

The teen was thrown from the motorcycle and was transported to a local hospital where the youth succumbed to injuries sustained and was pronounced deceased.

The crash occurred on Interstate 65 near Alabama 157, approximately 1 mile south of Cullman, in Cullman County.
