Fatal Accident In Millport

Millport, AL (WCBI) – A heart attack may have led to a fatal accident in Millport, Alabama Friday morning. Lamar County Coroner Marty Gottwald says 58-year-old John Morgan Blackburn of Fayette was westbound on Highway 96 when his Ford F-150 pickup veered off the road into a culvert.

The accident happened at about 7:30 a.m. near the entrance to Dollar General. Gottwald says Blackburn was dead at the scene. Other drivers told rescue workers that Blackburn’s truck suddenly left the road, leading Gottwald to believe that some kind of cardiac event may have been the cause.
