Two Injured In Kingsfield Road Crash; FHP Says Pickup Lost Wheel Prior To The Wreck

May 24, 2020

Two people were injured in a two-vehicle crash Saturday evening in Gonzalez.

A 33-year old female was trapped in her van for about 45 minutes as Escambia Fire Rescue firefighters worked to extricate her from the crash on East Kingsfield Road at Pauline Street. She was transported by Escambia County EMS to an area hospital as a trauma alert. The 19-year old pickup truck driver was also taken to the hospital.

The Florida Highway Patrol said the front wheel of the truck snapped off at the axle prior to the crash, causing the pickup to travel into oncoming traffic. photos by Kristi Barbour, click to enlarge.

    Every time there is a motor vehicle accident, I’m so sad. Some accidents like this one can’t be avoided. Please be more careful when driving. Injuries &/or death are unnecessary and can/should be avoided. Life is precious. Please be more careful.

    But yet they charged him for careless driving when it was faulty equipment.
