CULLMAN – A Vinemont man has died as a result of an early Sunday morning automobile crash. Alabama State Troopers identified the man as Brandon Adam Hamm, 33.

The single-vehicle wreck happened at approximately 4 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 7, 2018 in the 2600 block of County Road 1212 in the community of Battleground. Troopers said Hamm was not wearing a seatbelt.

According to Trooper Chuck Daniel, Hamm was seriously injured when the 2003 Acura MDX he was driving left the roadway and struck a tree. Hamm was ejected and later airlifted to Huntsville Hospital. On Monday, Oct. 8, Hamm died from his injuries.

Hamm was indicted in May 2018 by a Cullman County grand jury in the death of Mortimer Jordan High School volleyball coach Kelsey Marie Treadaway, 31, of Kimberly.

Treadaway, the daughter of Alabama Rep. Allen Treadaway, R-Morris, was killed on Feb. 25, 2018 when the 2010 Toyota Camry she was driving was struck from behind by a 2007 Chevrolet pickup driven by Hamm, according to Alabama State Troopers. That wreck happened on Interstate 65 near mile marker 304.

Troopers said Hamm left the scene of the wreck and was later located and identified. Hamm, who was not injured in the crash, was charged at that time with felony leaving the scene of an accident and placed in the Cullman County Detention Center. He made bond and was released.

In June, following his indictment, Hamm was arrested at a job site in Virginia and extradited back to Cullman County to face charges of manslaughter.

The investigation into the fatal Feb. 25 wreck was conducted by State Troopers, but the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office was tasked with bringing Hamm into custody following the indictment, according to Sheriff Matt Gentry, who said the CCSO brought the U.S. Marshals in to help when it was discovered that Hamm was not in Alabama.

Friends of Hamm's wife, Brittany Hamm, on Monday set up a GoFundMe page for the family. Find it at
