Atmore Man’s Car Goes Over Bridge Guardrail (With Photo Gallery)

February 22, 2018

An Atmore man crashed crashed his vehicle over a guardrail and into the water between the Highway 90 bridge spans in Santa Rosa County Wednesday.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 47-year old Daniel Payton Taylor was headed east on Highway 90 when his 2005 Chevrolet Tahoe traveled on the grassy median about two miles west of Woodbine Road. The Tahoe then collided head-on with a guardrail that is intended  to protect vehicles from entering the water between the two bridges.

Impact with the guardrail sent the Tahoe into the air before entering the water, the FHP report said. The Tahoe came to rest fully submerged.

Taylor received minor injuries and was transported to West Florida Hospital.
