One person was killed in a three-vehicle wreck Thursday morning on Carson Road in north Jefferson County, authorities confirm.
The wreck happened just after 9:30 a.m. on Carson Road near Indian Valley Road in the Fultondale area.
The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says preliminary information indicates the person who died was trying to pass a vehicle, but didn't have enough space to get around. A third vehicle was unable to get out of the way, and all three cars ended up crashing.
Two adults and two children were transported from the scene. One adult, the driver of the passing vehicle, died at the hospital. The other adult is still in critical condition.
Authorities say the children do not have life-threatening injuries.
The names of the victims have not yet been released.
