June 2, 2014

Two people were killed in a three-vehicle crash last Saturday night in Monroe County, Ala., including a former Atmore resident.

According to Alabama State Troopers, 46-year old Douglas Chandler of Monroeville was killed when the 2009 Chevrolet Aveo he was driving collided with two other vehicles on U.S. 84 about 11 miles west of Monroeville.

The accident also claimed the life of one of the other drivers, 67-year old Jane Strength of Frisco City.

The Alabama State Troopers have not released any information about the third and surviving driver as they continue their investigation.

Chandler was a former resident of Atmore. Both victims have family members in the North Escambia area.

    Doug was a very good man. He was loving and always was ready to help someone in need. I really hate to see him go. Great man.

    Doug was a very intelligent, articulate and creative man…I have many memories of him the SCV camp but also outside of the camp, I remember the movie he made while in college and many other stories.

    We all pass at least two anniversaries a year as the Earth passes around the sun…one is our birthday, the other our death day…one is known, one is unknown….

    One of the people injured is a former student of mine. He’s a senior and a great kid. Please say an extra prayer for his recovery.

    I am so sorry to hear about this. Our family (Jeter) has known the Chandler’s for many years. I went to school with Doug. My heartfelt sympathy to all the families involved and praying for God to comfort them and hold them close.

    I have known Doug since high school, and he is a great man. He will be missed greatly. From all of us whom you have touched so much in the local SCV Camps, Deo vindice!
