Two Injured In Highway 29 Crash Near Molino

December 18, 2015

Two people were injured in a two vehicle accident Thursday night on Highway 29 in Molino.

One person was airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola by LifeFlight as a “trauma alert”, while a second person was transported by Escambia County EMS to a Pensacola hospital. Further details on their conditions were not available.  A third victim refused medical treatment.

The cause of the accident was not immediately clear. But both vehicles overturned off Highway 29 near Rawhide Lane, just north of Highway 95A. At least one of the vehicles snapped a utility pole. One vehicle, a Saturn car, came to rest on its side while a Chevrolet Silverado pickup came to rest partially on the Saturn.

The seriously injured victim was trapped in the Saturn as firefighters were forced to remove the roof of the vehicle to free him.

The accident remains under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. Further details have not yet been released as they continue their investigation.  The Molino, McDavid and Cantonment stations of Escambia Fire Rescue and the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office also responded to the crash.

    @a alex—No. That is the right rear tail light lens from the pickup truck. Look just above & to the right of the red lens to see where it belongs.

    A alex, that is the trucks own right rear tail light lens.

    Heather, sometimes the tow truck driver is even more danger. After the passengers are taken care of, the emergency responders usually leave. The tow truck driver has to then take care of the mess. The LEO is usually busy with paper work in their vehicle. The driver has to sweep, pick up scattered parts and load the vehicle while trying to avoid being killed by impatient drivers. There is usually a dozen or so killed every year.

    Prayers for all involved! But I must say as a tow wife no one ever thanks the tow truck driver! Their lives are in as much danger as the other emergency vehicles.
