Police Investigating Deadly Hit and Run In Gulf Shores

UPDATE: 11:55 pm

Gulf Shores Police tell us one person was killed.  They say the victim, a man, was trying to assist people involved in a 2-vehicle wreck on the bridge when he was struck by a vehicle that left the scene.

 

Gulf Shores Police are investigating an apparent hit and run on the Intracoastal Waterway Bridge.

Here’s what we know so far: it happened around 10:00 pm in the northbound lanes of the ICW bridge.

We’re told a van struck a pedestrian and sideswiped another vehicle on the bridge.

The driver of the vehicle that was sideswiped followed the van beneath the bridge where a passenger jumped out. 

A short time later, Orange Beach Police spotted a van with heavy front-end damage at a gas station in Miflin and detained the driver.

Traffic on Northbound Highway 59 and 20th Avenue is being re-routed as investigators work the scene.

The names of those involved have not been released.
