Monroe, AL — There was an accident on Route 33 that involved a young local man being hit by a dump truck on Route 33. Police identified the victim as Matthew Welna, 25 years old, and said that this happened early Friday morning, March 20, 2015 at about 6:30 a.m.
Welna had been driving west along Route 33 that morning in his car when he pulled over near Perrineville Road. Allegedly, he got out of his car and as he was walking, he was hit by a dump truck that was also driving west on Route 33.
The accident killed Welna immediately and the dump truck driver, 60-year old William Walker, wasn’t harmed. Police said that they think Welna may have been walking in the roadway, but aren’t sure. This may need more investigation.
