Four cars were involved in the crash including a Mobile Police cruiser.

Mobile Police responded to the scene just before 7:30 Tuesday morning.

It happened on Spring Hill Ave.in front of the Cash America Pawn Shop.

The police cruiser narrowly missed the entrance of the pawn shop due to a row of yellow poles lined up in front of the building.

Witnesses who were involved in the crash recall the terrifying moments before the police cruiser crashed into the poles.

Rolike Ambrose, who was involved in the crash, says he saw the entire ordeal unfold.

He says the patrol car was coming out of parking lot of the Cash America Pawn Shop and crashed into a green Toyota Camry sending it spinning towards other cars.

The Camry then barreled into his car, starting a domino effect.

"The police hit the same car that hit us. Then hit the car in front of us and then the police car went through the pawn shop. It happened so quick, you really can't say how, when, or what happened, so we just took it in stride and got out and hoped that no one was hurt, but there were two that were," said Ambrose.

At this time, the injuries reported by the witness are not confirmed by officials.
