The accident happened around 10:15 a.m. The Gulf Shores High School Mighty Dolphin Marching Band had just started the parade, when a white Ford SUV lost control and careened into the students. The driver, a 73-year-old man, then put the van into park and got out with students still trapped underneath the car.
A total of 12 students were injured, four critically. The driver remained at the scene and cooperated with local authorities, and at this time drugs and alcohol do not appear to be factors. The accident remains under investigation to determine cause and liability.
