A wreck on Point Mallard Parkway this morning claimed the life of a Somerville woman, according to Morgan County Coroner Jeff Chunn.
Ramsey Williams, 30, of Somerville, had blunt force trauma injuries and was declared dead at the scene, Chunn said. He said she was wearing a seatbelt.
Others were injured in the wreck, according to police.
The multi-vehicle wreck, which took place about 7:15 a.m., was just north of the Wheeler National Wildlife Refuge headquarters. Traffic was down to one northbound and one southbound lane. Southbound traffic was backed up to U.S. 31 at 8:30 a.m.
After previous fatal wrecks, the Alabama Department of Transportation in 2016 completed a study of Point Mallard Parkway from Country Club Road Southeast to Hickory Hill Road. A spokesman at the time said the accident history did not warrant funding for widening or other modifications, and that its location within the refuge precluded widening the highway.
