Car Accident Shuts Down Oates Street for Two Hours

A two car accident shuts down a portion of South Oates Street in Dothan and lands one in the hospital in critical condition.

A vehicle from Florida heading north and carrying three people collided with a south bound vehicle turning left on Inez Road.

Sgt. Tim Ward of the Dothan Police Department says a preliminary investigation shows the driver who turned and caused the accident appears to have been intoxicated.

Police closed portions of the road for at least two hours to clear the wreckage and conduct an investigation.

A passenger who was in the backseat of the car traveling north was taken to southeast Alabama Medical Center with critical injuries.

Others also went to the hospital but don't appear to have serious injuries.
