Century Man Injured In Bluff Springs Rollover Accident

August 31, 2009


One person was injured in a single vehicle rollover accident Monday morning in Bluff Springs.

Leslie L. Lassiter, 63, of Century, was northbound on Highway 29  just north of Bluff Springs Road just before 6 a.m. when he lost control, ran off onto the shoulder of the road and overturned into the median, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. His Toyota truck came to rest upside down in the median of the highway. Lassiter was ejected from the vehicle, according to the FHP.

He was transported  by ambulance to Sacred Heart Hospital in serious condition.  LifeFlight was unable to respond to the scene due to morning fog.

Charges against Lassiter are pending, according to the FHP.

The Century Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS also responded to the call.
