Alabama State Troopers have identified a 17-year-old female who was killed in a single vehicle crash that occurred just before 10 o'clock Monday night. Three other in the vehicle were injured when the car overturned several times on U.S. 231 South, about four miles south of Montgomery. The deceased passenger was identified as 17-year-old Cheyenne Moore of Montgomery. Three others were injured and transported to Baptist South Hospital. Troopers said the four occupants were ejected from the vehicle and seat belts were not used.
Police have identified the pedestrian struck and killed last night in Montgomery. Investigators say 54-year-old Milton Dawson of Georgia was hit by a car while in the 900 block of West South Boulevard at approximately 5:45. He was taken to Baptist Medical Center South where he was later pronounced dead. The driver of the car was not injured. The investigation into the crash is ongoing.
Officials who directed a multistate dog fighting investigation have been honored by the Humane Society of the United States. The group recognized U.S. Attorney George Beck of Montgomery; Assistant U.S. Attorney Clark Morris; former FBI agent Keith Baker; two current FBI agents; and an Auburn police officer for their work in the investigation. Officials say more than 400 dogs were rescued.
Olympian at Legislature
The Alabama Legislature received a visit from an Olympian Tuesday. Birmingham native Vonetta Flowers paid a visit to lawmakers in Montgomery. She is the first black athlete to win a gold medal at the Winter Olympics, which she died at the 2002 games as part of the woman's two-man bobsled team. Flowers said she came back to Alabama to drum up support for the Olympics.
