Published 10:04am Tuesday, September 4, 2012

One person was killed Monday in a wreck on Interstate 565.

A 2005 Lexus SUV traveling westbound on Interstate 565 near Glenn Hearn Boulevard crossed the median into the eastbound lanes and struck a 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage head-on around 11 a.m.

The identity of the deceased driver of the Mitsubishi has not yet been released because his family is currently in another country.

The preliminary cause of the accident is attributed to the driver of the Lexus having a medical issue while driving. The investigation is ongoing.

The Lexus  had two occupants, both Montgomery residents. Marion Johnson III, 59, was driving the Lexus, and his wife Cynthia Johnson, 64, was the passenger. They were transported to Huntsville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.
