December 31, 2017

A young Cantonment man was cited after a motorcycle collision with an Escambia County deputy Saturday afternoon.

Dawshawn Bonner, 19, was riding an off-road Suzuki motorcycle northbound on Calloway Street about 4:09 p.m. when he crossed the center line into a path of an Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Tahoe, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Bonner lost control of the motorcycle, causing it to slide under the ECSO Tahoe, trooper said. Bonner received minor injuries and was transported to Baptist Hospital; the deputy was not injured.

The Florida Highway Patrol charged Bonner with driving a motorcycle with no endorsement and careless driving.

    Please motorcyclists, remember you have family and friends who love you and take it easy on these roads. I am passed by motorcyclists every day and pray as they do.

    One fortunate young fellow. God definitely smiled on him- without a doubt! Hope he was wearing a helmet, as I’ve taken care of many TBI (traumatic brain injury) patients over the years, who thought that they were invincible. It can be a real life-changing event.
