RUSSELL COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -

Passengers are recovering in the hospital tonight following a major accident on Highway 80 in Ladonia.

Emergency crews shut down the road this afternoon where two vehicles collided near the intersection of Terrace Drive.  

Witnesses said one patient was flown away in a medical helicopter.  

The red SUV ended up in a ditch and needed to be pulled out with a cable.  

Our newsroom received a tip that one of the drivers fled from the scene on foot.  We have not been able to confirm that information.

Phenix City Police are investigating the incident, and no one from the department was available Tuesday evening to release information to the public.

The road reopened just before 6 PM.
