Gasoline Tanker MVA

Cullman County HazMat

Witnesses to Monday morning’s collision between a passenger car and fully-loaded fuel tanker truck in the Bethel community all agree on one fact — It was a miracle the young driver wasn’t killed.

Not only was Jason Tharp, 16, of Logan, not killed, witnesses said after his 2004 Pontiac Grand Prix was struck broadside on the passenger side by the Leader Transport truck from Holly Pond, Tharp crawled through his driver’s side window and ran to check on the driver of the truck. The truck had left the roadway and crashed through a soon-to-open beauty salon at the corner of U.S. Highway 278 West and County Road 1117.

William Hunt, 55, of Remlap, the driver of the 2002 Peterbilt which literally torpedoed the future location of Sherry’s Vision Hair Care, said by the time his truck came to a stop through the back wall of the building, the young man was up on his running board.
