Colonial BancGroup Inc. of Montgomery, Ala., said Friday that there is "substantial doubt" it will survive after a plan to sell itself to a Florida mortgage lender fell through.

Colonial, which also reported its fifth straight quarterly loss, said there was a mutual agreement to terminate plans to sell a majority stake to Taylor, Bean & Whitaker Mortgage Corp. It is the second capital-raising transaction to fall through for Colonial this year.
