Escambia Man Dies In Santa Rosa I-10 Wreck

April 30, 2013

An Escambia County man died in a traffic crash Monday night on I-10 in Santa Rosa County.

The Florida Highway Patrol said a semi-tractor trailer was stopped in the outside eastbound lane of I-10 after being involved in a prior crash. The driver of the semi had placed emergency reflectors in the roadway and had activated his emergency  flashers on the truck and trailer to warn motorists.

Daniel Mac Dobbins, age 34 of Pensacola, was eastbound on I-10 at the 34 mile marker when he failed to see the semi, traveling over the reflectors and into the rear of the trailer being pulled by the semi. Dobbins’ 2006 VW Passat came to rest under the trailer. He was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The crash was not alcohol related, according to the FHP.
