On Thursday, November 19, 2020 at approximately 1130pm the Ozark-Dale County E911 Center received a call of a possible road rage incident in progress on Lakeview Rd in Ozark. The vehicles traveled down several roads before turning south on Hwy 231 in Newton.

As the vehicles traveled southbound the suspect vehicle forced the victim’s vehicle off the roadway causing it to overturn multiple times. A female occupant in the vehicle was ejected and pronounced deceased on the scene. This is an ongoing investigation but based on preliminary information we believe this is domestic related.

We have charged Michael Smith of Ozark with murder and attempted murder. Smith surrendered to Dale County SO Investigators early this morning and is currently being held in the Dale County Jail pending his 1st appearance hearing.

We are withholding the name of the deceased pending notification of next of kin.

We are being assisted by Ozark Police Department’s Criminal Investigation Division as well as the ALEA’s Highway Patrol Division and the Newton and Pinckard Police Departments.

Additional agencies that assisted:

Newton Fire Department
Midland City Police and Fire
South Dale EMS
Pinckard Fire Department
State Bureau of Investigations
Alabama Department of Transportation
