MADISON COUNTY, Ala. (WAFF) - HEMSI has confirmed that one person was killed in a wreck on Wednesday afternoon.

The Madison County Sheriff’s Office says the wreck happened on Steger Rd. between Moores Mill Rd. and U.S. Highway 231.

According to officials with ALEA, 53-year-old Eric J. Hartsgrove, of New Market, was fatally injured when the 2020 Suzuki motorcycle he was operating crossed the center-line and collided with a 2013 Dodge Ram, driven by 55-year-old Eric Drake, of Harvest.
