Three people were injured in a wreck involving a car and a semi-truck Friday night in Molino.

Two other passengers — Michael McMillian, 27, and Jeffrey McMillian, 29, both of Monroeville — were not injured. The injuries were not believed to be life threatening.

Their southbound vehicle was struck by a semi-tractor with no trailer being driven by Terry Spears, 54, of Molino, according to the FHP. Spears and his passenger, Joshua Spears, 29, were not injured.

According to the FHP. Spears pulled out of Molino Road directly into the path of McMillian’s car. Spears was cited for violation of right of way, and McMillian was cited for failure to provide proof of insurance, according to the FHP.

The Molino Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS also responded to the crash.

    I still say a traffic lite would help.

    REGARDING:
    “as I came down there doing
    45 like you’re supposed to do now, some young girl came down the road
    and passed me doing about 70 even tho she was also passing on a double
    yellow line”

    I wonder if taking and holding the offending vehicles for a month or two before returning them would help your situation. She might still speed, but the loss of a couple of vehicles for a while would likely slow her and other speeders down about getting others or getting others to loan her theirs.

    David for perfect solutions

    its not only about the speeding ,,,,its also people pull in the media from every which way ,,,and just stay there instead of waiting for the traffic to be clear on both sides .i see it everyday people need to be patient or leave your house earlier ……

    I see they changed the speed limit on 97 and as I came down there doing
    45 like your supposed to do now, some young girl came down the road
    and passed me doing about 70 even tho she was also passing on a double
    yellow line.
    SHERIFF it won’t do any good what so ever to change the speed. The only
    people who will care are the people who always care. The ones who
    thumb their noses at the speed limits will just drive on……you need to
    put officers up there day and night for a while and take the lawbreakers off
    the road before they kill a bunch of kids up here and it will be on YOUR
    head buddy because your the one who has the power to stop it.
    It’s not just rush hour either. They start at 5 in the A M running 97 and 29
    at incredible speeds. THAT my brother is why we have so many roll overs
    up here. Speed Limits and Red Lights only control the GOOD who CARE
    it won’t stop the “Get out of my way people”.

    By the way, I am very glad everyone invovled is okay. I do believe LEO need to monitor the speed thru Molino and elsewhere on our hwys and roads. I, myself, do not always follow the speed limit thru there, I ADMIT IT!

    “We really need a red light at that intersection”…Here we go again….I am so tired of hearing this.” WHEN are people going to start taking responsibility for their own actions????? Why do you live in MOLINO if you llike traffic lights? Move to town and let the people who do not post comments like this EVERY TIME an accident happens, here or Hwy 97, live in this end of Escambia County.

    It was just a matter of time. DOT needs to start cracking down on 29 and 95A. Big trucks have no road manners.

    I have a new Toyota Camry, and yes, five people in the car is quite legal, with seatbelts for all.

    I hope all will be ok. Cars can be replaced; people can not. I hope everyone is counting their blessings.

    We had just walked out of the diner when we heard the hit and responded to help. They all got out of the car and ran to the side away from the car.The 16 year old Girl had most of the injuries but i don’t believe any where life threatening. She was sitting in the middle of the back seat. The 14 year old boy was also in the back on the driver side behind his mother. They were lucky that both vehicles stopped were they did and not in the ditch as i have seen many times in the past. We really need a red light at that intersection.

    Hope everyone is ok. Is 5 people in that car actually legal and I hope
    she actually has insurance? So many people think it is ok to run around
    without it, but why wasn’t she carrying an insurance card?
    I realize the truck was dead wrong, and went by this accident probably
    minutes afterward because no one was there yet except one other grey car
    pulled up in the drug store lot.
    You couldn’t see the red car, but it looked like three people
    standing on the side of Molino Rd looking down into a ditch or something.
    Like I said I hope everyone is going to be ok.
