Huntsville police have identified the victim in a fatal accident Tuesday on I-565 just east of County Line Road as a Decatur man.

Michael Hubbard, 43, was killed in the one-vehicle accident that occurred about 3 p.m., Huntsville police spokesman Lt. Stacy Bates said.

Bates said Hubbard was traveling westbound in an SUV-type vehicle and the wreck may have resulted from a "medical issue."

The vehicle traveled into the median and rolled "multiple times," Bates said.

Peck Funeral Home in Hartselle is handling arrangements.

The wreck occurred near the Glenn Hearn Boulevard exit for Huntsville International Airport, according to WAFF-48, the Daily's news partner.
