BLOUNT COUNTY, Ala (WIAT) — Seven people were injured after a gray SUV overturned on HWY 231 near mm 280, says Trooper Gary Daniel of ALEA. 2 victims had to be airlifted, and the rest were transported by ambulance.

According to trooper Daniel, no one in the vehicle was restrained. Daniel says 45-year-old Glenda Renay Tedder of Union Grove was driving the 2002 Oldsmobile Bravado when it crashed and overturned.

The children are aged 2, 7, 9 and 13. The 9-year-old was airlifted to Children’s of Alabama with serious injuries.
