Driver Flown To Hospital After Highway 29 Rollover Wreck

March 30, 2010



One person was transported to a Pensacola hospital by helicopter following a single vehicle accident this afternoon on Highway 29.

The accident happened just before 5 p.m. on Highway 29 about a mile south of Bogia Road. The driver of a southbound pickup truck lost control, crossed over the median, rolled over and hit a tree on the northbound side of the highway.

The driver was transported from the scene by LifeFlight. His condition was not immediately available.

The northbound side of Highway 29 was closed for about half an hour due to the accident.

The McDavid and Molino Stations of Escambia Fire Rescue responded to the call, along with Escambia County EMS and the Florida Highway Patrol.

The accident is still under investigation by the FHP. Further details were no available.

    I just want to thank everyone for their concern and prayers. Also, I want to thank the person who called 911 and got help to my husband as quickly as possible (you probably saved his life), the FHP, the Escambia Fire Rescue Stations and the Escambia County EMS.

    My husband has a fractured vertebrae in his neck; he will be wearing a neck brace for at least 4 weeks. He has staples in the top of his head due to numerous lacerations. There are also minor bruises here and there. He is still in the hospital as of tonight; we are hopeful that he will be released tomorrow. All in all, he is alive and will recover from this nightmare thanks to all the good people who helped him.

    Thank you everyone; you are greatly appreciated.

    We waited while the local Firemen worked the accident they did a great job! I hope the guy driving the truck will be okay. It looked really bad.
    I wish people driving up on a backed up line of cars would take their place like everyone else in the line. Tennessee plates maybe they don’t have the same respect
    the rest of us have. Then pushed themselves into the front of the line the trucker had know choice but to let them in. Thanks all who worked the accident.
