A two-vehicle wreck late Tuesday afternoon in Thorsby sent one person to the hospital by way of emergency helicopter.

Collins Chapel Fire Department Chief Shawn Carlisle said the incident involved a head-on collision on U.S. Highway 31 near Lomax Assembly of God and Kissell Entertainment around 5:44 p.m.

The collision shut down both sides of Hwy. 31 for about 30 minutes as agencies from Collins Chapel Fire Department and Jemison Fire Department worked the scene.

Carlisle said two individuals were involved in the wreck with one individual having to be airlifted to UAB.

A landing zone was set up at Lomax Assembly of God for the patient to be transported.

The second individual had minor injuries and was treated at the scene, Carlisle said.
