Molino Man Killed In Alabama When He Is Hit By His Own Vehicle

May 4, 2021

A Molino man was killed when he was struck by his own vehicle north of Flomaton Monday night.

Alabama State Troopers said 85-year old Marshall Fant was killed after being hit by the 2014 Nissan Frontier he had previously been driving. Fant was outside of his vehicle after he was involved  in a crash with a Honda Accord on Highway 31 about six miles north of Flomaton.

As a 2020 Toyota Camry approached the crash location about 9:15 p.m., the Camry struck the rear of the Frontier which then hit Fant. Fant was transported to an area hospital but later was pronounced deceased.

Alabama troopers are continuing to investigate.

    Marshall was one fine gentlemen. He loved life and loved people. I have been honored to be his friend and working with him, he taught me a lot about life, friendship and trucking. He loved the trucking industry and always made good of a bad situation he could fine goodness in anything. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. I know I’ll see him again one day and I know he’ll have that big smile on.
