The first accident happened about 3:30 a.m. near County Road 97 and Tobias Road in Cantonment. The driver of a minivan lost control, left the roadway and the van overturned into a tree. The vehicle came to rest on its side against the tree. The driver was able to crawl out of the vehicle as rescuers arrived and was transported to a Pensacola hospital.
The Cantonment Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS responded to the crash.
The second accident happened about 4:30 a.m. on Highway 4 near Still Road in Bratt. The driver of a pickup truck lost control, left the road way and the truck overturned. When the first firefighters from the Walnut Hill Station of Escambia Fire Rescue and Atmore Ambulance arrived on scene, they were unable to locate the driver of the vehicle. They later determined that the driver had been transported by someone else to Atmore Community Hospital.
Both accidents are under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. The names and conditions of the drivers have not been released.
