Dothan Police Lt. Watson called for the Dothan Traffic Division CRASH Team to respond. The CRASH Team is made up of officers trained and specialized to in motor vehicle accident reconstruction and extensive investigation.
It appears a single vehicle was traveling on Trawick Road. As the vehicle approached Highway 52, Trawick Road curves. The vehicle did not curve, from the damage it appears the vehicle was traveling pretty fast. The vehicle struck five other vehicles parked in the parking lot of the establishment on Trawick Road and Highway 52 West. No one was inside the cars parked in the parking lot.
The business has been at this location for over three years. Over the last three weeks two serious accidents at this location, none of which were contributed to the business at this location.
Two Pilcher Ambulance units were on the scene to transports the patients.
