The two-vehicle crash happened on Thursday at 8:40 a.m. on Cobbs Ford Road at Interstate 65, about one-tenth of a mile west of Millbrook. According to police reports, the 2006 Lincoln Mark LT, driven by Mary Adkins, collided with a 2018 Dodge Ram 2500, driven by Raymond Hawthorne Jr., 37, of Pike Road.

Ethel W. Harris, 73, and Rashard T. Adkins, 36, were passengers in the Lincoln and were pronounced dead at the scene of the wreck. Harris, of Selma, and Adkins, of Jones, were not using seat belts, according to police reports.
