Highway 97 Accident Injures Two

February 28, 2009


Two people were injured in a two vehicle accident in front of the Piggly Wiggly on Highway 97 Friday night.

One southbound pickup rear ended a pickup stopped in the southbound lane to turn into the Davisville shopping center. The pickup that was stopped was spun around in Highway 97.

Two people, one from each vehicle, were transported by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries.

The accident happened just before 6:30.

The Walnut Hill Station of Escambia Fire-Rescue responded to the call, along with Atmore Ambulance, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department and the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the call.

The accident is still under investigation by the FHP.
