According to James Spann of ABC 33/40, there were two confirmed fatalities in an auto accident on I-20/59 near exit 97. Alabama highway 11 crosses over the interstate there and that's the exit for West Blockton and Centreville.

There were multiple tweets from people stopped on the interstate. People were getting out of their cars to ask each other about the situation.

We've received two first-hand accounts from the site of the accident. One person, who was an EMT for five years, told he's never seen a car torn up as bad as this one was. The other told us that there were passengers slung from the vehicle.

We will update this with more information as we get it.
