TRUSSVILLE — The pond at the intersection of Camp Coleman Road and U.S. Highway 11 could be filled and the area commercialized.
Trussville City Clerk Lynn Porter said Danny Buchanan bought the property, which came with a house across U.S. Highway 11.
Porter said Buchanan is trying to fill in the pond in hopes that it could become a commercial lot in the future. Another business, possibly a bank, could go across the highway.
The body of an Odenville man was found in a crashed truck in the bottom of the pond in January 2013. Guardrails were later installed around the curve from U.S. Highway 11 to Camp Coleman Road due to vehicles ending up in the pond in the past.
