Local News

DALE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Dale County Sheriff Wally Olson said he and his family are blessed after this past weekend.

Over the weekend, he along with his wife and their two children were returning to the Wiregrass after a stay on Panama City Beach.

They were northbound on State Highway 85 in Geneva County’s Bellwood community. A driver of a second vehicle t-boned Olson’s vehicle at the Highway 45 intersection.

“I tried to avoid the car as much as I possibly could and actually clipped the side of my vehicle,” he said. “Caused us to run off the road a little bit.”

There were no serious injuries, but Olson’s vehicle was heavily damaged.

The two-vehicle wreck is under investigation by the Alabama Highway Patrol.
