A crash at 2:30am on New Year’s Day, 2020, left three early-20s people dead and a fourth in hospital. The incident happened in Elmore County, about five miles east of Wetumpka, on Rifle Range Road near Peace Church Road.
According to the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency [ALEA], a 1997 Lexus ES300 that was being driven by Ladarious Antonio Griffin, 25, of Montgomery, left the road, struck a tree, and overturned.
Along with Griffin, two passengers in his vehicle, Charnavia Lashay Hinkle, 22, of Montgomery, and Lamisha Nicole Avera, 22, of Wetumpka, were fatally injured. Alabama State troopers say none of the three had on a seatbelt at the time of the crash.
A fourth passenger — who was unidentified but was the only occupant using a seatbelt — survived the crash and was taken to hospital.
