A two-vehicle accident in River Falls Friday morning claimed the life of a local postal service driver.

According to the River Falls Police Department, officers responded at approximately 9:57 a.m. to the two-vehicle collision on Alabama Hwy. 55 North, about 1 mile north of the Hwy. 84 intersection. River Falls Police Chief Kyle Adams said his department, in collaboration with Alabama State Troopers, is “diligently pursuing an ongoing investigation into the incident.”

The postal driver killed in the accident was Hannah Denae Lindsey, 32. She was driving a 1998 Chevrolet Lumina. The driver of the second vehicle involved, a Dodge Ram, was not injured.

Preliminary findings suggest that both vehicles were traveling southbound on Hwy. 55 when the accident unfolded.
