Five killed in head-on collision in Chilton County

CHILTON COUNTY, AL (WBRC) - Police have released the names of those killed in a fatal accident in Chilton County.

Troopers say Matthew Riley Zimmer, Evan Weaver, Matthew Roe and Alexx Bauer were killed Saturday. The four Indiana teens were returning home from spring break.

Niall McNellis of Troy also died in Saturday afternoon's crash. Initial reports say McNellis was driving on Interstate 65 just south of Clanton when his car crossed the median and hit the car driven by Zimmer head-on as the teens drove north.

Several people in a third car suffered minor injuries.

State troopers tell us weather may have been a factor, but it is too early in their investigation to tell.
