LOWNDES CO., AL (WSFA) -

The Alabama Department of Corrections and the Lowndes County Sheriff's office are confirming that a manhunt is under way at this hour for 4 people.

Details are limited, but authorities say the hunt started after a traffic stop in Fort Deposit.

The suspect vehicle fled the scene onto Interstate 65 then onto Highway 97 where the four people jumped out and ran in different directions.

Authorities have a tracking dog from Kilby Correctional Facility in the area searching for the people.

No additional information is immediately known. WSFA 12 News has a crew in the area and will have more information as it becomes available.
