LOXLEY, Alabama — A head-on collision Monday on Alabama 59 at the entrance of the Loxley Municipal Park just south of U.S. 90 has resulted in the death of a Bay Minette woman.

According to a release issued Monday by Lt.

The collision occurred at around 7:20 a.m.

“The driver and the passenger in the Jeep, both in their early 20s, were transported in critical condition by helicopter to USA Medical Center in Mobile,” Phillips said. It is believed they have both been stabilized.
