Despite the crash, injuries were said to be minor. A 36-year-old woman was taken to an area hospital while two males refused treatment.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

The park, a 4-acre spot located off West Fairview Avenue, serves primarily to improve the quality of water that runs from Genetta Stream to the Catoma Creek, which eventually ends up in the Alabama River.
