The Cullman County sheriff’s deputies have released the name of the young man who lost his life in a car crash while trying to escape them.
According to recent reports, it has been confirmed by the Jefferson County Coroner’s Office that the person who passed away is Alexander Lee Currington. He was a young man of just 20 years old and resided in Crane Hill.
According to Chief Deputy Coroner Bill Yates, it was confirmed that the driver of the red Chevrolet Tahoe involved in the chase that began in Cullman County and ended in Jefferson was Curington.
According to Cullman County Sheriff Matt Gentry, the events unfolded at approximately 7:30 p.m. on Monday in Bremen. Deputies attempted to pull over a vehicle, but the driver refused to comply.
According to the sheriff, Cullman County deputies were targeted with multiple gunshots during the pursuit. As the chase progressed into Jefferson County, several other law enforcement agencies joined in the effort to apprehend the suspects.
According to reports, the pursuit finally came to a halt at around 8 p.m. when Curington apparently lost control of his car, resulting in a series of flips and rolls. The accident occurred in the vicinity of the Shell gas station located at Morris Majestic Road and U.S. 31.
According to reports, Currington was ejected from the vehicle and sadly lost his life at the scene at 8:30 p.m.
According to Gentry, there were no reports of any shots being fired by law enforcement officers.
At present, the investigation is being carried out by the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency, and they have not yet disclosed any details about their findings.
