A car accident at the intersection of N. Fulton Avenue and Presstman Street on Feb. 23 left one man dead and several others injured. According to Police Spokesperson Det. Jarron Jackson, officers responded to the call at 11:30 a.m. finding four vehicles involved.

The accident claimed the life of Tevin Ridgley Hall, 27, pronounced dead at the scene. Det. Jackson said a vehicle carrying two males struck the car carrying Hall and his two passengers – an adult female and a 2-year-old girl, both unidentified.

Both passengers in Hall’s car were transported to the hospital. The girl is in serious condition with head injuries.

Two other cars collided with this initial crash, one carrying a single male passenger, the other with seven male passengers. Others involved in the accident were treated for non-life threatening injuries and released from area hospitals.

“This is a complicated accident,” Det. Jackson told the AFRO. “When you have this many vehicles involved, there is a very meticulous investigation that has to be done to determine the exact cause of the accident.”

The cause of this accident is still under investigation. Det. Jackson said it could take a while to determine. “There are a lot of people to interview and they have a lot of vehicles reconstruction they have to do to determine the exact cause of the accident.”

At this time, police cannot say if speed or alcohol was a factor in the deadly four car pile-up.
