Upside down

Atmore firefighters examine a 2009 Dodge Challenger that ran off U.S. 31 around 11 a.m. Monday, October 9, and eventually came to rest upside-down in a field adjacent to Hanging Fern Lane. According to Alabama State Troopers, the driver — 17-year-old Guy Coleman of Atmore — “was apparently driving too fast for existing roadway conditions” and lost traction. The car struck a flush hydrant, a dirt embankment and a telephone junction box before flipping several times. Coleman was taken by ambulance to North Baldwin Infirmary in Bay Minette, and reports are that he was later transferred to USA Medical Center in Mobile.
