COFFEE COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — Dense fog may have contributed to a vehicle leaving State Highway 51 in Northeast Coffee County’s Tabernacle Community early this morning.

The woman driver was not seriously hurt. A dense fog advisory was in effect at the time.
Authorities want to remind the motoring public to slow it down during foggy conditions because in many cases, visibility can be extremely limited.

Coffee County Deputy EMA Director, Grant Lyons, says if you’re speeding in such conditions,
the other driver has no idea that you may be coming his or her way.

Lyons asks drivers to leave for their destinations a little bit earlier than usual when the weather is hazardous.
