Error Likely Caused Crash

An investigation of a fatal wreck Monday indicates the victim may have overcompensated after inadvertently wandering into the oncoming lane.

Michael Woodall, 49, lost control of the Lauderdale County vehicle he was driving and crashed into the woods on Mount Carmel Road.

Woodall was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected through the driver's side door.

The Lauderdale County Sheriff's Department said another county employee witnessed the accident.
