Hanceville, AL (September 18, 2023) – Two people lost their lives in a motor vehicle collision that occurred in Cullman County on Saturday morning, September 16.

At around 5:30 a.m., troopers with the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency responded to the scene of an automobile accident that occurred on Alabama 91.

Reports indicate that a head-on collision between two vehicles occurred on the roadway just a few miles outside of Hanceville. The incident prompted ALEA to shut down the road while assisting.

One person involved in the accident, identified as 22-year-old Syndi Helms, was fatally injured. Helms was pronounced deceased at the scene.

A second victim, who has not been identified to the public, was also pronounced deceased on-site due to their injuries.

We offer our condolences to the families of Syndi Helms and the second victim who died in this accident.

Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama

Losing a loved one as a result of a fatal accident can be incredibly difficult to accept. Unfortunately, hundreds of people die due to automobile collisions across our state every year. These accidents are often preventable and take place as a result of some form of negligence. We see countless innocent people lose their lives in accidents as a result of speeding drivers, drivers who are distracted, and even drivers who fail to yield the right-of-way.

When innocent people lose their lives as a result of accidents, their families are often left to deal with overwhelming mental and emotional consequences. It is also fairly common to see family struggle moving forward due to the financial consequences that these accidents bring. Many families are forced to spend tens of thousands of dollars on medical care costs and funeral arrangements. Unfortunately, it is incredibly hard to prepare for these and other financial burdens that families face due to an unexpected loss.

If your loved one has died as a result of a fatal accident, your family may be able to seek compensation for punitive damages from the person who is responsible. This type of legal action can help to provide your family with financial relief moving forward. Although filing a wrongful death claim will not bring back your loved one, it can help to provide your family with a sense of closure and justice.
