According to Butler County Sheriff’s Deputy Curtis Campbell, the vehicle then struck Pilgrim Travelers Church

“Glass was not using a seat belt at the time of the crash and was pronounced deceased at the scene,” McKinney said.

McKinney stressed the importance of obeying traffic controls, which help to ensure motorist safety.

“Traffic controls have been put in place throughout our Alabama roadways to enforce and ensure the safety of motorists,” McKinney said. “When approaching a  posted stop sign, the law states a driver must come to a complete stop before that posted sign or stop light if there is one present. Then, when safe to do so or clear of oncoming traffic, enter into the roadway.
