SELMA, AL (WSFA) - WSFA 12 News has a crew on the scene of an accident in Selma where an automobile slammed into the side of an abandoned gas station. The driver and passenger in the vehicle fled the scene, then returned, according to authorities.

The accident happened just before 5:30pm Monday on Highway 22 just outside the Selma city limits.

The driver of the vehicle, who refused treatment and had no serious injuries, told authorities he lost control of his automobile while trying to avoid another car. That's when the car slammed into the side of an abandoned gas station damaging the gas pumps, awning and structure.

It was not immediately clear why the vehicle occupants fled the scene, but they did return a short time later.
