COALFIRE, Ala. (WCBI) — A West Alabama driver is lucky after a brush with a dump truck this morning.

Witnesses say Billy Wilson was westbound in a dump truck owned by Nichols Dirt when a pick up truck driven by Charles Hal of Reform pulled southbound from Sentell Road across Highway 82 into Wilson’s path.

The dump truck nipped the back of the pick up, spinning it around in the road.

Fortunately, Wilson and the pickup driver escaped serious injury.

The accident happened at about 8 this morning near mile marker 14 between Reform and McShan.
