A tractor driver was a victim in an accident involving a semi-truck Tuesday afternoon on U.S. 31. Edward Wilson was driving southbound toward Brewton in a semi-truck loaded with shingles when the accident occurred. “I didn't realize what I had hit until I walked up out of the ditch,” Wilson said. Wilson was uninjured in the mishap. The driver of the tractor, whose identity was not known at press time, received non-lifethreatening injuries in the accident according to members of the Appleton Volunteer Fire Department. The victim was transported to D.W. McMillan Hospital. Alabama State Trooper Jimmy Dean responded to the scene. An investigation into the accident is on-going.
