Driver Charged After Molino Road Wreck Cuts Power

August 30, 2010

An unknown number of Molino residents were without power for about eight hours Monday night after a wreck on Molino Road.

The Florida Highway Patrol says Kenneather S. Davison, 23, of Century, was westbound on Molino Road when she lost control about 6:10 p.m., struck a ditch embankment and then hit a power pole. The force of the collision near Veazy Lane snapped one power pole, damaged several others and left power lines scattered on the ground about a half mile back to near Highway 95A.

Davison was transported to West Florida Hospital by ambulance with minor injuries. According to the FHP, Davison was charged with careless driving. The Molino Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS also responded to the crash. photos, click to enlarge.

    Our power came back on at 3 this morning. Thankfully it stayed fairly cool. Glad the young lady is ok.

    Dear FHP, I live on Molino Road West of Hwy 29.I have a circular driveway. If you ever need a place to park to catch speeders, it’s all yours. Sandwich meats,leftovers and sodas in the fridge.

    Lemme know.

    I’m glad there was no serious injury, but the the cars that speed on 95A and Molino Rd. is incredible. I’m surprised there are not more wrecks. I followed a dump truck down 95A doing 65 and it’s a 45. Nice out in the country but forget about a walk or a bike ride. And I’m concerned about kids riding ponies down the side of the road. Not enough speed traps to suite me.

    Thanks for the info William…Power is out all the way down to the river! Thanks to the power guys for a speedy (hopefully) job of getting the power back on. Can’t really hang out outside since the mosquitos are a risk too! God bless the driver! Hope she is ok. :)
