FIRST ALERT: 2 taken to hospital, 1 in custody after car wreck in Decatur--the details on WAFF 48 News Today

(WAFF) -

1 in custody after car wreck

One person is in custody and two people were transported to the hospital after an early morning car wreck in Decatur. Police say the driver of one of the vehicles ignored a traffic signal and slammed into another car. The two passengers in that car were removed with the jaws of life and taken to two area hospitals with non-life threatening injuries. Police arrested the driver of the other car and say they believe alcohol was a factor in this wreck.

Alabama to kick off at 8 p.m.

The Alabama Crimson Tide will take on the Michigan State Spartans in the Cotton Bowl tonight at 8 p.m. WAFF's Scott Theisen and Carl Prather are in Dallas for the playoff game and will provide updates from AT&T Stadium.

Cloudy New Year's Eve

Skies will be mostly cloudy today, but we’ll stay dry as rain showers will be ongoing to our southeast. Cooler weather is headed into the Valley and for the most part, we’re starting the day a few degrees lower than we did Wednesday. Many of you will start off in the low-to-mid 40s this morning.

We hope you'll join Tiffaney Bradley, Trent Butler and David Ernst for WAFF 48 News this morning. Remember, you can always watch online at or by tapping "Watch Newscasts" on your WAFF News mobile app.
