Update: FHP Releases Details In Cantonment Crash That Injured Three

November 4, 2015

Three people were injured in a two vehicle crash on Highway 29 in Cantonment Wednesday morning.

The Florida Highway Patrol said 69-year old Jackie Roscoe Helton of Walnut Hill was southbound on Highway 29 just past Highway 95A when he crossed the median into oncoming traffic. His 2012 Ford F150 collided with the front of a 1999 Dodge Durango driven by 71-year old Cecil Wayne Carnley of Okeechobbee, FL.

Carnley and his passenger, 63-year old Robin Jeanean Carnley of Pensacola, were critically injured in the crash. Cecil Carnley was trapped in his vehicle about an hour while firefighters worked to free him from the wreckage before he was airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital. Robin Carnley was also transported to Sacred Heart in critical condition. Both Carnleys were wearing their seat belts, troopers said.

Helton was airlifted to Baptist Hospital in serious condition. He was also wearing his seat belt, according to the FHP.

The FHP said alcohol was not a factor in the wreck. Any charges in the crash are pending further investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.

Highway 29 in Cantonment was complete shut down just over an hour by the crash.

    I pray that everyone recovers and no permanent damage is done. Cantonment is a small town where everyone knows everyone. I’m scared to see the names when they are released.
