Double Fatality In Bremen: Car Catches Fire After Colliding With Tree

This location of the mishap was approximately one-half mile off of Highway 69 almost equidistant between Bremen and Dodge City.

Emergency responders were dispatched to County Road 109 late this morning by Cullman e-911 in regards to a single car motor vehicle accident.

This location of the mishap was approximately one-half mile off of Highway 69 almost equidistant between Bremen and Dodge City along what is also known as Cold Springs Road.

Upon arrival, a deputy with the Cullman County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO) discovered that the vehicle in question had left the roadway and impacted a tree. The force of the collision was severe enough to create an almost immediate fully involved car fire.
