Talladega, AL – Amber Marizette Fatally Injured in Car Crash on Jackson Trace Rd near Providence Rd

Talladega, AL (May 1, 2023) – The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency confirmed that 33-year-old Amber Marizette suffered fatal injuries due to a car crash that took place on Saturday in Talladega County.

Official reports provided by ALEA show that a 2004 GMC Envoy was involved in a collision with a 2004 Chevrolet Silverado, which was driven by 46-year-old Michael Denton, on Jackson Trace Road.

The impact of the crash blocked multiple lanes of the roadway near Providence Road, approximately five miles north of Talladega, Alabama.

Marizette was severely hurt as a result of the crash. She was rushed by ambulance to Citizens Baptist Medical Center for emergency care. Authorities confirm that she later passed away from her injuries.

The driver of the GMC, 40-year-old Brentavies L. Marizette, and a passenger in the GMC, Travoris K Wallace, were also injured as a result of the crash. Marizette was transported to Citizens Baptist Medical Center for emergency care.

Wallace was transported to the University of Alabama at Birmingham Hospital for emergency treatment.

The accident is being investigated by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency at this time.

We hope that Brentavies L. Marizette and Travoris K Wallace are able to recover quickly following this crash.

We offer our condolences to the family of Amber Marizette at this time.

Fatal Car Accidents in Alabama

Hundreds of lives are lost annually as a result of motor vehicle accidents in the state of Alabama. Far too many of these accidents are completely preventable. We see innocent people lose their lives every day as a result of motorists who are careless and reckless. Some of the leading factors in fatal car crashes across our state include:

  • Speeding: Exceeding the posted speed limit while driving on our roads can lead to deadly accidents. This is especially true when traveling on narrow or winding roads.

  • Drivers who are under the influence (DUI): Alcohol and drug use can impair a driver's judgment, coordination, and reaction time. This can lead to serious accidents that result in devastating injuries for those involved.

  • Distracted driving: This includes any activity that takes a driver's attention away from the road. In Alabama, some of the most common distractions include cell phone use, eating, and talking with passengers.

  • Driver fatigue: Driving while fatigued or drowsy can impair a driver's ability to react and make safe decisions on the road.

  • Failure to yield: This includes failing to stop at a stop sign or red light and even turning into parking lots without yielding to others nearby.
