A 22-year-old Selma man was killed Monday evening in a multi-vehicle crash in Dallas County.

The crash happened around 6:30 p.m. on Alabama Route 22 near the 13-mile marker, about 10 miles west of Selma.

Robert E. Thompson, 22, was killed after the small car he was driving crashed into the rear of a tractor being towed by a pickup truck driven by a 69-year-old man. After the initial collision, Thompson’s vehicle collided head-on with a separate pickup driven by a 58-year-old man.

Thompson was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Alabama Law Enforcement Agency Highway Patrol Division is investigating the cause of the wreck.
