Five Dead In Two Wrecks In North Baldwin County, Alabama

September 21, 2019

A total of five people were killed in two wrecks in north Baldwin County, Alabama, over about a 30 minutes span Saturday night.

Shortly before 5:00 p.m. Drazen Alilovic, 48, of Theodore, was traveling south on Alabama 225 near Cottage Hill Road when his 2012 Chevrolet Silverado collided head-on with a 1995 Nissan truck.

The driver of the Nissan, William B. Shuman, 56, of Bay Minette, was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash.  Alilovic was arrested by troopers and booked into the Baldwin County Correctional Facility on a single count of manslaughter in connection with the crash.

The second crash occurred at around 5:30 p.m. on I-65 just north of exit 37—Rabun Road.  Brent Alden King, 56, of Fairhope was driving north in the southbound lanes near the 38.1-mile marker when his 2009 Chrysler Town & Country collided head-on with a 2018 Volkswagen Tiguan.

King and all three occupants of the Volkswagen suffered fatal injuries and were pronounced dead at the scene. The names of the other three fatalities have not been released.

No further information is available on either crash as troopers continue to investigate.

    Such a shame, my wife worked with Julie Song in Atlanta side by side at corporate Aaron’s for years. She was killed with her two parents on the way to the beach for vacation. Ironically we live here now and we’re talking about her a week ago go. If you’d ever been to the Talladega 500 when Aaron’s with the sponsor. Julie was the coordinator for all of the Aaron’s participation associated with the race.

    We came along just after it happened. It was the exit where 59 crosses over 65, outside Bay Minette. Such a tragedy. My prayers are with everyone involved.

    Doesn’t really matter which exit it was….too many people lost their lives unnecessarily. Prayers for all involved.

    >>The rabun/perdido exit is exit 45, which is not 20 miles south of either atmore exit. Either this happened at the 37 exit (bay minette) or the story is wrong.

    The exit at the 37 mile marker is also labeled for Rabun (like exit 45). Exit 37 is 20 miles south of the Atmore exit (exit 57).
