Driver Ticketed After Colliding With Escambia County Deputy

November 19, 2019

A driver was ticketed after causing a collision with an Escambia County deputy late Monday night.

It happened about 9:10 p.m. when 51-year old Darren Lamar Lee of Pensacola traveled from a Nine Mile Road entrance ramp to Highway 29, across a high seperator in the construction zone and into the path of a deputy’s marked Chevrolet Tahoe, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

FHP said Deputy B. Kersey tried to slow and avoid a crash but hit the driver’s side of Lee’s Ford Ranger.

Neither driver was injured, but Kersey was temporarily unable to exit his vehicle due to the damage.

Lee was cited for crossing a marked divider.
