Bailey said a Tuscaloosa man driving a 2017 Nissan Versa collided with a 2013 Ford Edge being driven by a 90-year-old man.

The victim who died, 87-year-old Marilyn J. Morse, was a passenger in the Ford.

Bailey said the vehicles collided around four miles south of the city of Tuscaloosa on Highway 69 South, and the drivers and passengers in both vehicles were injured in the collision.

Morse and a passenger in the Nissan were both taken to DCH Regional Medical Center, and Morse succumbed to her injuries in the hospital Friday.

Nothing further is available as Troopers with the ALEA's Highway Patrol Division continue to investigate.
