Amen Corner: Owens intersection described as 'deadly'



Friday’s accident

Troopers said all three occupants — all listed as Athens residents by the accident report — were wearing seat belts and talking to first responders who summoned two MedFlight helicopters. The driver and one of his passengers were taken by helicopter while the other passenger was transported by ambulance. Troopers said all three were taken to Huntsville Hospital.

A hospital spokeswoman said Christina Jarrett was released on Saturday. Waylon Jarrett and Kenneth Pylant were not listed as patients at the hospital.

Alabama State Troopers, Athens-Limestone E.M.S. and the Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene, along with Owens VFD.
