A Vinemont man, who was implicated in a traffic accident that claimed the life of a Mortimer Jordan coach, died Sunday morning in a wreck in the Battleground community.
Brandon Hamm, 33, was not wearing a seatbelt in the 4 a.m. single-vehicle accident Sunday on County Road 1212, according to Alabama State Troopers.
Hamm was indicted in May by a Cullman County grand jury in the death of Mortimer Jordan High School volleyball coach Kelsey Marie Treadaway, 31, of Kimberly. She was the daughter of Alabama State Rep. Allen Treadaway, R-Morris. That accident occurred Feb. 25 when the 2010 Toyota Camry she was driving was struck from behind on Interstate 65 by a 2007 Chevrolet pickup driven by Hamm, Troopers reported.
Troopers also reported Hamm left the scene of the wreck and was later located and identified. He was not injured in the wreck and was charged at that time with felony leaving the scene of an accident. He made bond and was released.
Hamm was arrested in June at a job site in Virginia and extradited back to Cullman County to face a charge of manslaughter.
