JEFFERSON COUNTY, Ala. (WBRC) - Jefferson County deputies confirmed a woman was killed in a head-on collision Tuesday morning.

The Jefferson County Coroner has identified the victim as Deborah Denise Brown Thomas of Carrollton. She was 53.

Deputies said they responded shortly after 7:00 a.m. to a head-on collision in the 6500 block of Old Tuscaloosa Highway, near McAshan Ridge Road.

Authorities say Thomas was the driver and the only person in a Hyundai Sonata traveling north on Old Tuscaloosa Highway, when her vehicle was struck head-on by a Ford Taurus traveling south in the opposing lane. 

A man and a woman in the second vehicle were taken by ambulance to a hospital with what appears to be non-life-threatening injuries.

Jefferson County START Detectives have been called to the scene and will continue to investigate the circumstances surrounding the collision.
