Mobile, AL – Two Killed in I-65 Crash at Airport Blvd
Mobile, AL (November 13, 2023) – A motor vehicle collision reported in the Mobile area on Saturday morning claimed the lives of two victims.
At around 4:00 a.m. on November 11, the Mobile Police Department responded to a crash that occurred on Interstate 65.
Preliminary investigations provided by the police show that a vehicle was traveling south on Interstate 65. For unknown reasons, a vehicle entered the interstate from the eastbound side of Airport Boulevard when the driver lost control of the vehicle. As a result, the vehicle stalled and collided with the second vehicle on the road.
The driver of the second vehicle was able to exit before the car became engulfed in flames. The victim was injured in the crash and transported to a local hospital.
The driver of the other involved vehicle, 38-year-old Ronald Jones, and his passenger, who has not been publicly identified, were both declared deceased at the scene by responding authorities.

We hope the injured victim recovers quickly.
Our sympathies go out to the families of Ronald Jones and the second victim who died in this crash.
Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama
Fatal automobile collisions are the cause of hundreds of deaths annually in Alabama. Unfortunately, these accidents can have an overwhelming impact on a family. After losing a loved one, it is appropriate for families to take legal action against the responsible parties.
In Alabama, the exclusive right to initiate a wrongful death claim rests with the personal representative of the estate, except in cases involving a minor under 19, where the parents have a six-month window to file a lawsuit. Following this period, the personal representative must proceed with the claim.
The family has a period of up to 40 days from the accident to petition the probate court to appoint them as the personal representative. Should they miss this window, the court may designate an alternative administrator.
If wrongful death damages are granted, they are allocated to the heirs or those individuals who would inherit from the victim if no will exists. It is vital that surviving family members take legal action right away by reaching out to a Mobile wrongful death lawyer. Waiting can negatively affect your ability to get justice.
