A fatal head-on collision on State Highway 74 resulted in the death of four people in Huntsville last Friday.
At around 5:00 p.m., a four-door Ford Taurus was seen attempting to pass another vehicle along SH 75, just south of Park Road 40, when it collided with a four-door Fusion. Three occupants in the Taurus was killed upon impact. The driver of the Fusion was also killed. Meanwhile, a fourth occupant in the Ford sustained serious injuries. He was airlifted to a nearby hospital where he was listed in a critical condition.
