ST. CLAIR CO., Ala. (WBRC) - Two people were killed Tuesday morning in separate multi-car crashes on I-20 WB between mm 155 and 158 according to the St. Clair Co. coroner.

Alabama State Troopers confirmed David D. Weatherspoon, 40, of Moundville was killed when his SUV was struck by a tractor-trailer.

Troopers said after the collision, both vehicles left the roadway and struck a concrete median barrier. According to Troopers, Weatherspoon was not using a seat belt at the time of the crash, and he was partially ejected and died at the scene.

The crash occurred on Interstate 20 near the 155 mile marker, approximately four miles west of Pell City, in St. Clair County.

The wreck also resulted in a diesel fuel and gasoline spill that shut down all westbound lanes as well as the two left lanes on the eastbound side. Pell City HazMat was called to the scene.

A second wreck occurred a few miles down the road near mm 158. One person was killed in this incident, according to the coroner.
