DECATUR, Ala. (WAFF) - A three-vehicle car wreck claimed the life of one Union Grove woman on Saturday afternoon.

Decatur officials said 68-year-old Joyce Tollie Phillips, was the passender of a 2016 Ford Focus when she was fatally injured in an accident that occurred on Alabama 36 near Red Oak Road, approximately three miles east of Somerville.
