Posted: Updated:

It was a deadly Saturday on the roads in Alabama as three men were killed in separate accidents, Alabama State Troopers said today.

The first fatal accident occurred shortly before 2 a.m. on County Road 463 in Cullman. Pedro Toledo Romero, 21, of Vinemont, was killed when the car he was a passenger in left the road and hit a tree, according to Sgt. Steve Jarrett. Romero wasn't wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash.

The second accident happened just before 4 a.m. on Interstate 59, just before mile marker 55 and approximately two miles northeast of Knoxville, where 34-year-old Jeremy White, of Tuscaloosa, died after the pickup truck he was driving collided with another truck before overturning. According to Jarrett, alcohol is believed to be a factor in the crash. White was wearing a seat belt.

The third fatal crash occurred shortly after 8 p.m. in Wilcox County. Travis Walker, 43, of Vredenburgh, was killed when the car he was driving left County Rd. 6 and struck a tree. Walker wasn't wearing a seat belt.

Investigations into all three accidents remain ongoing.
