The mayor of Center Point, Bobby Scott, says he heard this could be a case of road rage. The Sheriff’s Office has not yet been able to confirm this, though.

The mayor says that this isn’t normal for his town and that it shows how important it is to solve problems. He also asks anyone who knows something to speak up.

“This could happen to anybody. This could have been anybody’s family coming up the Parkway. They were coming from viewing fireworks and enjoying family time. So this could be anybody’s family inside, or outside the city. We as a society, as a whole, have to look out for each other.”

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office Detectives are looking into it. Please call the police at 205-325-1450 (option 2) if you have any information or video that could help. You can also call CrimeStoppers at 205-254-7777 to give an anonymous tip.
