Published 5:03pm Thursday, July 25, 2013

Authorities are continuing an investigation of a single-vehicle crash Wednesday at 5 p.m. on Interstate 65 at the 199-mile marker.

The wreck caused slow traffic along the southbound side of I-65 during Wednesday’s rush hour due to the crash that was near the Verbena Exit 200.

The southbound lane was closed for more than 30 minutes as law enforcement and emergency personnel worked the wreck of a single-vehicle car that rolled over.

Alabama State Trooper Public Information/Education officer Charles Dysart could not provide many details of the wreck but said Anthony Wooley of Alabaster was driving the car at the time of the crash and Terrance McLaughlin of Calera was the passenger.

Initial reports of the wreck from the dispatch unit said both Wooley and McLaughlin had been ejected from the car.

Dysart confirmed both Wooley and McLaughlin were injured but could not confirm the details of the injuries due to the wreck still being under investigation.

Dysart did confirm there were no fatalities.
