Scrushy vehicles to be auctioned

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - An auction will be held this week for former HealthSouth CEO Richard Scrushy's fleet of automobiles.

Jefferson County Sheriff's deputies seized the fleet of 19 vehicles this month. Some of the cars include a 1929 Cadillac Phaeton, a 2002 Bentley and a 2000 Rolls Royce Corniche. They are being sold for cash to the highest bidder Thursday.

The auction is to help pay for the 2.8 billion dollar judgement in a civil trial for the accounting fraud that almost ruined HealthSouth and drained the retirements of many of its stockholders.
