According to the Douglas Police Department Chief Eric Spate, one person is dead after a vehicle went into a creek off Horton Road around 2:20 p.m. Wednesday.
The person was pronounced dead at the scene. Douglas police, Douglas Volunteer Fire Department, Albertville Fire and Rescue and Alabama State troopers responded to the scene.
The Douglas Volunteer Fire Department has both lanes on Horton Road blocked off. Neighbors told WAAY 31 the road is a dangerous one, and this isn't the first serious accident they've seen.
Neighbors in the area told WAAY 31 it's been a dangerous drive for decades.
Sheila Cooper was visiting family that lives nearby and said she heard the sirens Wednesday night after the crash and even though the speed limit around the curve is 15 miles per hour, it's common to see drivers go much faster.
"You're taking your life in your own hands when you come out here by this road, lots of times, because of how fast people go through here," she said.
