Can L6206 be used as 4 half H bridges?

I want to use the L6206 to drive 4 solenoids (one end of the solenoid each solenoid will be grounded) of 2.5amps each. Can this be done without damaging the IC. ? Also each of the bridges two halfs will not be drived simultaneously. Means the 2 solenoids on 1st bridge will be used only alternatively and never simultaneously. Can this be done?

In a case if both bridges are simultaneously turned on the data sheets says it will have Vs on its output pins, I had a question if this condition though it would not ever occur would be bad for the circuit reliability.
