Members of the Alabama Law Enforcement agency are looking for whoever was behind the wheel of a car that crashed early this morning on Potter Tract Road.  ALEA first got the call at about 12:50 Saturday morning.  They towed a black 1995 Acura Integra from the scene.  The driver was nowhere to be found.

A vehicle collided with a power pole early this morning.  The fallen utility pole shut down traffic around Potter Tract and Turkey Farm road for several hours before dawn Saturday morning.  The incident also caused localized power outages in the area.
