ST. CLAIR COUNTY, Ala. – A multi-vehicle crash took the life of a Sylacauga man on Wednesday morning, May 18.

64-year old Larry Hughes, of Sylacauga, was traveling three miles north of Pell City on Hwy 174 in his 2013 Toyota Prius when, at approximately 10:21 a.m., he was struck and fatally injured.
