White was not wearing a seat belt. Investigators believe alcohol may have played a factor, said Sgt. Steve Jarrett of the Alabama State Troopers.

The second accident happened at 8:10 p.m. on Wilcox County 6 in Vredenburgh.

Travis Walker, 43, was killed when his 1997 Chevy Malibu left the roadway and struck a treat. Walker wasn’t wearing a seat belt.

Alabama State Troopers continue to investigate both accidents.
