Pursuit and road closure

The Dothan Police Department is working an active crash scene at Ross Clark and Kelly we asked motorists to please avoid the area as there are major closures and delays on Ross Clark Circle. There is an ongoing investigation of this crash and multiple criminal acts that preceded involving one of the vehicles. We ask the public to understand that there may be as many as four scenes to investigate leading up to the area we now stand so we ask for patience and understanding as we have members of patrol, investigations and traffic working diligently to find answers.
