Commissioner Billie Jo Underwood posted on Facebook Thursday she was "thankful for God's protection" after she was involved in a minor crash on 1-65. Underwood posted pictures of the charter bus she and other Leadership Baldwin classmates were riding in when the bus was rear-ended.
The driver of the 1998 Ford truck initially pulled over, Underwood said, then took off from the scene. His truck soon broke down and troopers quickly caught up with the driver.
"Again, I am thankful for being safe," Underwood wrote in the post.
Underwood says the accident happened north of Exit 93 near Evergreen where there was some road construction.
State Troopers say Robby Price, 55, from Evergreen was taken to the hospital but will be cited for leaving the scene of an accident.
