Teen Suffers Minor Injuries After Wild Airborne McDavid Wreck (With Gallery)
April 5, 2013
A 17-year old McDavid teen is recovering after single vehicle accident Thursday night in which her van was airborne for about 200 feet.
Authorities said Taylor M. Brook had donated blood at a blood drive in Century shortly before the 6:38 p.m. crash on Highway 29 north of Highway 164. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, she fainted as she was traveling southbound on Highway 29 as a result.
Brook veered off the roadway and struck a culvert. Her 2006 Ford Freestyle traveled about 200 feet while airborne. The vehicle vaulted over a ditch, the chain link fence in front of a residence at 1401 North Century Boulevard and went though the top of a tree, just below the roadside power lines. The front of the vehicle struck the ground and the vehicle overturned, coming to rest on its passenger side in a front yard.
Brook was airlifted by LifeFlight to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola, where she was listed in good condition early Friday morning. Family members said it appeared that she suffered no major injuries.
No charges were filed in the crash, according to the FHP.
