Several teenagers were injured after a vehicle struck a marching band at the Gulf Shores Mardi Gras parade.
The parade has been cancelled and people are leaving.
City spokesman Grant Brown said the band had just entered the street when a vehicle also in the parade accelerated and hit the teens. The number of injured and the extent of their injuries were not immediately known.
"Please be patient when leaving due to Emergency traffic needing access to the area," the Gulf Shores police department posted on Facebook.
