FHP: Walnut Hill Woman Critical After Multiple Vehicle Collision

May 1, 2017

A Walnut Hill woman reportedly caused a wreck with injuries early Sunday morning in Pensacola’s “Car Ciity”.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 51-year old Sonja Syria was eastbound on Marcus Pointe Boulevard at 4:03 a.m. when she failed to yield the right of way at an intersection with Highway 29.  Syria’s 2000 Ford Escort collided with a 2014 Nissan Altima driven by 31-year old John McMahon of Pensacola.

Mahon’s vehicle then struck a 2016 Chevrolet, a 2010 Mercury and a 2014 Jeep Wrangler on a nearby car dealership lot.

Syria received critical injuries and McMahon was seriously injured. Both were transported to Sacred Heart Hospital.

Any charges against Syria are pending the outcome of a further investigation, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

    It humors me to see how people read an article and then can’t seem to remember what they have just read. It is called comprehension and people nowadays seem to not have much of that after reading certain comments.

    The story stated “She was eastbound on Marcus Pointe Boulevard at 4:03 a.m. when she failed to yield the right of way at an intersection with Highway 29″ and hit this man which was seriously injured himself (so he did not WALK AWAY). Not so sure where in the heck Leggs got that from. Again, It is called comprehending what you read.

    William, You need to just forgive those that can’t read, comprehend what they are reading or remember what they just read. Fisherman is RIGHT ON as well. If she failed the right of way as the story states she is responsible for Her car, the man’s vehicle, and all those other vehicles at the dealership. I guess she will be losing her insurance for sure. Praying for all involved that the LORD will put his loving and healing arms around them both and heal them to where they still have quality of life. By the way, This was not wrote to me mean either, I wrote this to bring attention on how people read things and then can’t seem to remember what they just read. It humors me to no end.

    If the lady failed to yield right of way and struck another vehicle causing that vehicle to hit other vehicles she is at fault for all cars damaged. Please take time to read the article carefully as it explains the accident stated by FHP. Hope the lady is doing better praying for her.

    I can tell you right now that this man did not just “walk away” from this accident. Do not speak on things you know nothing about.

    >>This is the most low down lying article I’ve ever read,

    The article accurately reflects the Florida Highway Patrol report.

    This is the most low down lying article I’ve ever read, how did she cause this man to hit three cars, that’s what I want to know . And she’s still in the hospital in coma and she has children while the man walks away free. That’s not right, what they need to do is pull them cameras that they have on hwy 29 an see exactly what happened, instead of going by word of mouth

    Annie this could have just as easy been a member of your family. Thank God these people are alive. Im sure those vehicles on the lot were insured and will be replaced. But the family members couldn’t have replaced their loved ones. Be mindful of famlies reading this in this time of prayer.

    Anne you need to mind your own Business. That lady is 51 years old she can drive anytime of the day if she like. Y’all always get on here talking negative about people when y’all don’t have y’all house hold in line right. Don’t nobody Care what the owner of the car dealership think. We just thank god these two people are alive and getting well. Cars can be replace but lives can’t. Next time you get on here talking about people make sure your house hold is in line first.

    And I assume it is safest to drive that time of the day. I can imagine what the owner of the dealership had to say. Must be Monday.
