Driver Crashes Into Highway 97 Cotton Field

July 26, 2022

No one was found around a vehicle that rolled over into a cotton field Tuesday afternoon south of Walnut Hill.

The vehicle was apparently southbound about a half mile south of Tungoil Road when the driver lost control, crossed a ditch and ran into the cotton field. The vehicle then became airborne and overturned, coming to rest upright about 40 feet into the field.

There was no one around the vehicle when first responders arrived on scene, and volunteers searched the field for a possible victim.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating. The Walnut Hill Station of Escambia County Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS also responded.

    I’m not saying it was aliens… but it was definitely aliens.

    Well , I do not guess there was any need to hang around. Don’t look like they could drive it out

    Highway 97 is like Talladega Speedway.
    I wonder what the driver’s speed was when he left the scene?
    Why did the driver leave the scene? Really?

    Prayers for the driver. Not sure why they left but I pray they are ok…

    “I hope the driver wasn’t under the car, which is a possibility. But, hopefully they looked.”

    They looked. :)

    I hope the driver wasn’t under the car, which is a possibility. But, hopefully they looked. Praying for whom ever was in the car.

    I am the person who reported this. I couldn’t stop due to my 4 and 7 year old being in the car with me. Prayers for whatever happened
