2 teens killed in Cullman County wreck


CULLMAN, Ala. -Two teenagers were killed in a single-vehicle wreck in Cullman County early Monday morning. The crash happened at approximately 1:21 a.m. in the 800 block of Wesley Avenue (County Road 1669).

Cullman County Coroner Jeremy Kilpatrick said Caden Allen Rodgers, 19, of Holly Pond, and an unnamed juvenile were declared deceased at the scene.

The two were fatally injured when the 2001 Saturn SL Rodgers was driving left the roadway and struck a utility pole. Rodgers and a 14-year-old passenger both sustained fatal injuries.

Kilpatrick said both were wearing seatbelts.
