Rehobeth, AL — A Sunday morning crash in Houston County proved fatal to a Headland woman and hospitalized two others.

Shaun T. Cast, 27, of Gordon, AL, was driving south on U.S. 231 in a 2001 Chevrolet Camaro when it was struck in the driver’s side by a 2003 Nissan Altima driven by Chelsie Erin Trammell, 20, of Cottonwood.

Cast’s vehicle spun counter-clockwise and overturned several times, landing upright off the roadway, rear-seat passenger, 34 year old Viviloid E. Prichard was pronounced dead at the scene by Houston County Assistant Coroner Ben Earnest.

Front-seat passenger Cody S. Braley, 21, of Midland City, and Cast were transported to SEAMC for treatment of injuries sustained in the 11:30 a.m. crash.

Trammell, who is believed to have been restrained, was also transported to SEAMC for treatment of her non-life threatening injuries. Although the investigation into the crash continues,

Troopers believe speed and failure to yield the right of way contributed to the crash that occurred at the 5.8 mile marker (four miles south of the Dothan City Limits).

    This is what can happen when you are racing. Many want to blame the girl that hit them but not look at the fact that the car Vi was in was racing. The young girl that hit them was not drunk and completely sober. She is going through a lot also and blames herself for killing someone even though if the car Vi was in had not been racing this probably would not have happened. This has ruined all lives involved. Vi you will be greatly missed and my thoughts and prayers are with your son and family!!!!

    I worked with Vi in Dothan for a few years. She was a good person. My prayers go out to her son and family.

    I knew the victim pretty well. She used to be engaged to my husbands co-worker. I know she will be greatly missed. She didn't deserve to go this way. She also had a little boy that now has to live without his mother for the rest of his life. People need to pay attention while driving and follow the laws.

    My family and I was returning home from the Wiregrass area Sunday morning and I was very upset about How fast people was driving in raining weather. I am so sorry for the family of the victim, but the person who caused the accident, needs to learn to SLOW DOWN! IT'S BETTER TO ARRIVE LATE THEN THIS!!!!
