Wreck Claims Life

By  | 

Lauderdale County deputy coroner Clayton Cobler confirmed Tammy Colianni, 42, of Bailey, died Tuesday night at Rush Hospital after she was involved in a wreck earlier that afternoon.

Her car plunged into a Collinsville creek just before 3:00 p.m. Tuesday. It happened at West Lauderdale Road and Hamrick Road.

"This was a one vehicle accident. Eyewitnessses indicated speed was a factor, along with wet road conditions," said Sheriff Billy Sollie.

Cobler said the victim was not breathing when rescuers pulled her from the partially submerged car. He said Colianni was revived on the way to the hospital but died hours later.
