Two dead, one seriously injured in single vehicle crash

AUBURN, AL (WXTX) – A single vehicle accident Saturday night has claimed two lives of two East Alabama men.

Twenty one year old Courtney Dowdell was pronounced dead at the scene Saturday night and 20-year old Andrew Hart passed away in the intensive care unit Sunday afternoon from his injuries.

Both were passengers in a vehicle of four.

It appears the vehicle was traveling north on Wimberly Road in Auburn when it left the roadway and struck a tree.

A fourth occupant remains in the intensive care unit of East Alabama Medical Center.

Speed and alcohol are believed to be factors in the accident. The accident remains under investigation by the Alabama State Troopers and the Lee County Coroner's office.
