Atmore Man Killed In Semi Accident At Jay Peanut Processor

October 30, 2018

An Atmore man was killed  in a semi-truck accident at a peanut processor on State Street in Jay Tuesday morning.

Florida Highway Patrol said the semi was parked unloading a load of peanuts on State Street. After unloading the cargo, semi driver Anthony Mincey of Georgia received communication to pull forward, according to the FHP. Mincey was unaware that 59-year old Craig Sullivan of Atmore was under the trailer attempting to clear debris from the undercarriage.

Sullivan was struck by the moving vehicle.  He was airlifted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola where he later passed away from his injuries.

Any charges in in the incident are pending the outcome of the Florida Highway Patrol investigation.

    So very sorry for the loss of this man. This is a very sad accident and all who were involved will suffer for a long time. Even with safety precautions in place, accidents can happen anytime, anywhere. RIP sir.
