According to Dothan Police, the crash happened westbound on West Main and Bocage. Around 4:30 a.m., officers responded to the call of a robbery at the Circle K Gas Station on Montgomery Highway. While in route to the scene, police say an officer spotted the suspect vehicle on John D. Odom and attempted to stop the vehicle.
