Phenix City police stand by procedure following deadly weekend crash

Columbus Police were initially engaged in the pursuit with a stolen Honda C-RV around 7:30 p.m. Saturday. However, when the car went over the Oglethorpe Bridge into Phenix City, that’s when another law enforcement agency became involved. Police say the C-RV drove back into Columbus, traveled across the 13th St. bridge, then collided with a Nissan Murano. 

Hearing pushed back again for alleged driver in deadly Phenix City chase

Dezhaun Dumas will be back in Columbus Recorder's Court Friday due to a conflict of interest, leaving him without a lawyer.
