“Troopers collected vehicle debris, witness statements, and with assistance from Creole
PD looking through the nearby area, were able to locate the vehicle and interview the
driver,” said ALEA Captain John Malone. “Other charges may be pending as the
investigation continues.” Family members identified the victim of this crash as
44-year-old Ashley Sanderson from Saraland. Sanderson’s wife Victoria said they
were told the suspect tried to hide his car with a tarp. Mrs. Sanderson said her
husband continues to recuperate at USA Medical Center and is dealing with
broken bones and road rash. While he is in a lot of pain, she said her husband
should eventually recover and is being kept in the hospital to avoid infection.
The victim was traveling a few minutes ahead of his wife and family heading to their
hunting camp in Jackson. Victoria Sanderson said she saw her husband’s shoes on
the road and knew something was wrong.
“It just kept going through my head, God not now, please don’t take him from me now.
At that point I didn’t know until I got to him whether he was alive or dead,” said Victoria
Sanderson in a phone call from USA Medical Center. Even though the bike was dragged
for nearly two miles, the victim was conscious and alert at the scene.
“Some call it luck, I call it God’s Grace you know, I think it’s both, I think he’s very lucky
and the Lord just reached down and wrapped him up,” said Victoria Sanderson.
