    It is the same in Atmore. I know someone that got in wreck no insurance or drivers licences it was their fault. No ticket no nothing. Not even wrote up. I am so glad that the cops are doing their job in Flordia.

    hmmm, wonder what made this man lose control of his truck? He is very lucky to be alive, from the looks of these photos… hope he is ok. He shouldn’t have been driving in the first place though!

    The reason why they don’t have road blocks in Century, Byrneville area, no room for them in the jail. Could you just think of all the meth, pot, no license and no insurance violations they would find. The county would go bankrupt putting them behind bars. Let them carry on, just as long as no one gets KILLED ! Who cares ?

    Its amazing to me just how many folks are driving around still without license and insurance. And to me if you do not show proof of such you should not even be allowed to purchase a vehicle from a dealer or individual. Make it so they get fined sevearly if the sell to anyone without proof of either of them if we still had inspection station like we use to and you had to have a current sticker which showed proof of license and add insurance to it alot of this deliberate law breaking would stop. Hell it might even save a life or two.Just my 2 cents.

    This man should be thanking his lucky stars that he is alive to answer to the charges leveled against him. His family could be planning a funeral. Don’t know what led to the crash but he should not have been driving in the first place from the charges.

    Let’s see. His truck is destroyed, he has no insurance, he is in the hospital all banged up, and when he gets out he is going to jail. And all by a little after 8 am. I’ll bet it is going to be a long day for this young man..

    Thank you, William. Yes. I see the light now. I thought it may be an illusion. It looks like a toy person, the way I was seeing it. lol

    > Is that a person standing up on the left of the truck?

    There is a person standing in the background. There is a state trooper car behind the truck (see the headlight?). The person is several feet behind the trooper car.
