GRANT, AL (WAFF) -

A brake failure appears to be the blame for a crash in Marshall County that sent three people to the hospital Tuesday.

First responders said a truck headed down a hill on Highway 79 between Guntersville and Scottsboro on Tuesday morning when the brakes ran out..

The truck ran into the side of a black Dodge at the intersection of Baker Mountain Road.

Three people were in the car at the time; two were taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries and the driver of the car was flown to Huntsville Hospital.

Waterfront VFD called Grant Fire and Rescue, who came out and cut the truck driver out of the wreckage. He was not transported to the hospital.
