A single-vehicle accident in Sumter County killed one man and injured two others early Sunday morning, according to ALEA State Troopers.
Trooper Reginal King, a spokesperson for the Troopers in West Alabama, said the wreck took place around 4:30 Sunday morning on Pine Street, around 11 miles east of York Alabama.
King said a 22-year-old from nearby Bellamy was driving a 2019 Infiniti Q50 at a high rate of speed when the sedan left the road and struck a tree.
A passenger in the Infiniti, 24-year-old Rodney Deshaun McIntosh, was not wearing a seatbelt and was mortally injured in the wreck. King said McIntosh was pronounced dead on the scene when first responders arrived.
The driver and another passenger were also hurt in the wreck and were transported to an area hospital for treatment of their injuries.
