The accident took place in the Fosters area a few minutes before 2 p.m. Thursday on U.S. Highway 11 near mile marker 70 between Black Warrior Road and the river itself.

King said the deceased victim, 41-year-old Alimayo Jordan, was driving a 2006 Chrysler PT Crusier when he collided head-on with a Jeep Cherokee being driven by a  Tuscaloosa woman.

Jordan was reportedly not using a seatbelt at the time of the accident and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The second driver and two passengers who were riding with Jordan were all injured and transported to area hospitals for treatment.

No further details were available Friday morning, and ALEA's Highway Patrol Division continues to investigate.

Editor's note: an earlier version of this story incorrectly reported that the Jeep Cherokee involved in this accident was being driven a Tuscaloosa man. We have since learned the second driver was a woman and have corrected the mistake.
