Brewton Man Dies When He Crashes Pickup Into Century Lake

October 24, 2018

A Brewton man was killed when he crashed in a Century Lake Tuesday night.

Jordan Cooper, 37, was traveling south on Old Flomaton Road when he failed to negotiate a curve and ran off the roadway and collided with a utility pole about 7 p.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol. His 1999 Chevrolet Silverado traveled down a steep embankment, through a tree line and into a gravel lake.

The vehicle was submerged in about 10-15 feet of water when first responders arrived on scene. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office Dive Team assisted in the removal of the vehicle from the lake. Cooper was the only occupant of the vehicle.

About 460 Escambia River Electric Cooperative customers from Century to near Jay were without power for several hours due to the wreck.

The Century and McDavid Stations of Escambia Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS also responded.
