Slocomb Students Injured in Early Morning Crash

Written by Staff

Slocomb – At approximately 1:30 a.m., a single-vehicle crash on Hundley Road in Geneva County injured four Slocomb High School students.

Christopher David Hall, 16, of Slocomb was driving a 2004 Dodge Stratus when it ran off the road and crashed. Hall and the three passengers in the Dodge were injured. The passengers were Austin Hughes, 16; Haley Harrison, 15; and Tonya Spivey, 16, all of Slocomb.

Hall and Harrison were treated for non-life threatening injuries while Spivey and Hughes remain in critical condition at an area hospital for treatment. Alabama State Troopers continue to investigate this crash.

Burning, recycling and hauling were all methods examined this morning during a more than two-hour meeting between the City Council and Mayor William Bell on how and who will clean up the disaster area in Pratt City.

The group heard the pros and cons of hiring private companies as Bell suggests, or hiring the Army Corps of Engineers to coordinate the task, as a large number of council members favor. While city crews are working in storm damaged areas, all agree the task is too large for the city to undertake alone.

The sniping between Bell and some on the council is the result of the disagreement over what companies or agency should get the work, and the contracts worth millions. When today's meeting was over, that question remained unanswered.

NEW BROCKTON - The Coffee County Sheriff’s Department responded to a complaint Thursday about the mistreatment of dogs at a facility run by the town of New Brockton and found several malnourished dogs with little food and filthy water in conditions that Sheriff Dave Sutton said were “disgusting and deplorable.”

One dog was chained so improperly that the chain had made indentations in the animal’s skin. Two puppies were found to be so sickly that they were barely moving.

Sutton, who contacted the Coffee County Health Department and the district attorney’s office, said “We are seeking felony warrants on whoever is responsible.”
