MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Family and friends are mourning the loss of a local Marine killed in a traffic accident that happened Tuesday, June 25.
Dauphin Island Police continue to investigate the incident along with Alabama State Troopers after William "Bill" Bramlett died Thursday, June 27 in the hospital.
Friends and family said they were told a vehicle was heading south on the Dauphin Island Bridge when it veered out of its lane, crashing into Bramlett's motorcycle.
Bramlett, an active member of the Marine Corps league in Mobile, was leaving Dauphin Island to attend a league meeting.
Investigators would not go into detail but said they are still looking into what caused the driver to veer off course.
Meanwhile, Bramlett's fellow Marines said he has been a member of the league for at least four years and was also very active as a Patriot Guard Rider in Alabama.
A.B. Grantham, the Jr. past Commandant of the P.L Wilson detachment Marine Corps league in Mobile, said Bramlett was a father and grandfather who dedicated his life to his country since he was a teenager. Bramlett has spent his later years helping veterans and raising funds.
