Five high school football players suffered injuries in a rollover automobile accident in Birmingham. According to authorities, the August 15 incident took place on Montclair Road at approximately 5 p.m. It appeared that the five players were heading to football practice in an SUV at the time of the accident.
Reportedly, the players' vehicle was traveling through an intersection when it swerved in an attempt to dodge a vehicle that was making a left turn in the same intersection. Consequently, the players' SUV flipped multiple times, according to one media outlet covering the incident. Four of the five players managed to exit the wrecked SUV on their own accord, reportedly. Emergency personnel transported all five individuals to a Birmingham hospital. Authorities reported that the injuries suffered by the players were minor.
