Police tell LEX 18 that two people are dead and at least one other person is injured after a crash on I-75 Madison County Sunday evening.

The accident happened near mile marker 91. Police say four cars were involved. One person died at the scene, and the second victim died at the hospital.

Police say an initial crash happened, and two people went to the wrecked car to help the victim. While the people were standing outside the car, a second car drove by and struck them.

One southbound lane and the two left lanes northboundwere closed for hours while reconstruction teams worked to determine what caused the accident. Due to the snow, they decided to re-open the road around 10:30 Sunday night and come back to the scene Monday.

Police haven’t released which hospital victims were sent to or their names.
