Wreck knocks gas prices down

Gas prices appeared to have dropped at this Wavaho on Wilson Street Northwest near Leon Sheffield School after a driver hit the price sign on Saturday about 7:30 p.m. The impact knocked off numbers. The actual price for unleaded was $2.65. Decatur police officer Scott Strickland said the driver apparently was speeding and going eastward in the inside lane when he clipped a car in the outside lane, lost control, missed a utility pole, drove through a grassy area and hit the sign. Strickland said the driver crawled out of his overturned car. The driver’s name was not available. An ambulance took him to Decatur General Hospital. The occupants of the second car were not injured. A Birmingham driver who did not want to give his name said the driver passed him on a curve. “When I turned the curve, I saw smoke. The man was on the ground and trying to get up when I stopped.”
