On Monday June 7, 2021 at approximately 9:34pm a FedEx service truck crossed the median on Interstate 59 near exit 133 and collided with a Jefferson County Sheriff’s vehicle.  That collision resulted in a chain reaction collision with a Greyhound passenger bus.  The Deputy suffered minor injuries and was taken to a local hospital for treatment.  A passenger on the bus was also transported to the hospital for treatment.  Neither the injuries to the passenger or deputy appeared to be life threatening.  The preliminary investigation shows that the truck may have hydroplaned and crossed the median into oncoming traffic.  This accident is being investigated by the Birmingham Police department.
