Driver Hits Power Pole On Bogia Road, Days After A Fatal Wreck Near The Same Spot

May 18, 2020

Less than a week after a fatal crash on Bogia Road, a driver crashed Monday morning into a power pole near the same spot.

The driver lost control on Bogia Road just west of Ray’s Chapel Baptist Church about 10:45 a.m. Monday. The pole was snapped, cutting power to 123 Escambia River Electric Cooperative customers.

The driver stated he was attempting to a avoid a deer on the stretch of roadway through a wooded area. He was not injured.

On May 13, 33-year old Ernest Brown of Molino was killed when the vehicle in which he was as passenger left Bogia Road and crashed into a tree about 2,000 feet from Monday morning’s crash site. photos, click to enlarge.

    You need to get some Deer Whistles..they work. When we lived in Crawfordville FL it kept deer and other critters off the road..

    Do you really think a red light will make a deer stop? I am glad your poppa is going to be ok.

    Glad the person came out with only a bump on his head. So many wrecks on that road.

    Deer are bad things to hit (I well know) but are better than power poles. (And I’m glad he’s okay.)

    David for softer targets
