Pedestrian Struck By Vehicle, Seriously Injured In Cantonment

August 15, 2022

A man was seriously injured when he was hit by a car Monday morning on Highway 29 in Cantonment.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a 31-year old Pensacola man was in the front passenger seat of his wife’s vehicle, stopped in traffic in the inside lane of Highway 29 approaching Muscogee Road. The Pensacola man’s vision was obstructed  by a stopped cement truck in the outside lane as he got out of his wife’s vehicle and attempted to cross Highway 29 toward the golf course.

He was struck by a car driven by a 22-year old Atmore man southbound in the outside lane of Highway 29.

The pedestrian was airlifted by LifeFlight helicopter to a Pensacola hospital.

    @Not Happy
    So sorry someone getting hit by a car started your day off so wrong. Perhaps people shouldn’t have stopped and just rolled past. As for school backing up 95a, I suppose we could encourage everyone to home school so that you never have to even pump your brakes.

    Pretty obvious to understand what happened by what was written. He was passenger in a stopped car in the inside lane (let’s call that lane 1 — lane 2 was also stopped and that vehicle was a cement truck — lane 3 (turn lane) was the lane in which he obviously stepped in front of a car because they weren’t stopped but he couldn’t see them because of the cement truck.

    “This article makes no sense. He exited a stopped car and walked in front of a stopped cement truck and got hit by a car… Please explain the situation a little more thoroughly.”

    It’s explained in the article, and you got it right. That’s what happened.

    This article makes no sense. He exited a stopped car and walked in front of a stopped cement truck and got hit by a car… Please explain the situation a little more thoroughly.
