A Wilsonville man was airlifted to UAB Hospital on Feb. 15 after the vehicle he was driving wrecked on Alabama 25.
The Alabama Highway Patrol identified the man as 52-year-old Lane Ross.
Emergency responders were notified of the single-vehicle crash about 11:30 a.m. It happened just past the intersection of Shelby County 48, or Blue Springs Road, just east of downtown Wilsonville.
The Wilsonville Fire Department, Southeast Shelby Rescue, Shelby County Sheriff’s Office and Alabama Highway Patrol responded to the scene, according to Wilsonville Fire Chief Davy Edwards.
Traffic was diverted around the crash for about an hour as emergency workers removed Ross from the vehicle, Edwards said.
Trooper Doug Jackson investigated the accident.
