Man injured in Old Railroad Bed Road wreck

MADISON COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - One man was taken to the hospital with severe injuries after Troopers say he crashed his vehicle on Old Railroad Bed Road late Thursday evening.

Troopers say he was traveling behind another car when he tried passing it. Investigators say the road was narrow and the driver couldn't get around the vehicle fast enough. He side swiped the car and flipped over into a ditch.

Rescue workers found him lying next to the vehicle unconscious. A Med Flight chopper flew him to Huntsville Hospital to be treated.

The crash is still under investigation and the driver's name has not been released.
