Two Seriously Injured In Bratt Wreck

January 10, 2019

Two people were seriously injured in a head-on crash Wednesday night on North Highway 99 in front of Bratt Elementary School.

Both were trapped in their vehicles following the wreck about 7:45 p.m.

The Florida Highway Patrol said 19-year old Justin Elliot of Atmore was traveling north in a 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe when he crossed the center lane into the path of a southbound 2017 Jeep Cherokee driven by 28-year old Patricia Griener of Brewton.

Elliot was airlifted to Baptist Hospital, and Griener was airlifted in a second helicopter to Sacred Heart Hospital.

Elliot was cited by the FHP for failing to maintain a single lane.

    We are looking for the lady who sat and prayed with Tricia and kept her calm before help got there. We got to hug your neck and thank you in person briefly, but Tricia as well as myself want to connect with you soon. We were told you would be at Coopers this morning at 6 AM, but I wasn’t able to make it there before work. Please contact me at 850-418-9240. You are such a true angel!

    Thank you to everyone who was on scene that helped my friend as well as the other driver, I was overwhelmed to see how many people pulled together, and I am so proud to be a part of such a caring and loving community!! So relieved that they are both going to be okay.
