A two-vehicle crash claimed the life of a Brantley woman Sunday morning.

At approximately 8:05 a.m. on June 18, Lakenya B. Anderson, 40, was fatally injured when the 2018 Nissan Rogue she was driving collided head-on with the 2007 Chevrolet Silverado driven by Lucas M. Johnson, 20, also of Brantley. “Anderson was pronounced deceased at the scene,” said Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Sergeant Jeremy Burkett. “A 12-year-old juvenile, who was a passenger in the Nissan Rogue, was also injured and transported to a local area hospital for medical treatment.”

Community reports confirm the juvenile, Anderson’s son, has been transported to UAB hospital.
