Driver Crashes Into West Nine Mile Road Business

October 31, 2014

One person was serious injured in a three vehicle crash that left a car inside a Nine Mile Road business Thursday night.

The Florida Highway Patrol said 59-year old Harvey Milton Jeffcoat of Pensacola crashed his 1991 Honda Accord into the Gulf Coast Fresh Seafood Company at 2250 West Nine Mile Road after being involved in an accident at the intersection of West Nine Mile Road and Pine Forest Road about 10:30 p.m. He was transported to West Florida Hospital with serious injuries by Escambia County EMS.

Two other drivers collided in the intersection — 19-year old Alyson D. Anderson of Cantonment in a 2003 Toyota Rav 4 and 18-year old Tanner Cole Phillips in a 1999 Ford Explorer. Anderson, Phillips, and a passenger in Phillips’ vehicle were not injured.

No charges were filed in the incident by the FHP.

The owner of the business, Jonathan Patti said the seafood company will be reopened once repairs are made. In the meantime, an adjacent seafood restaurant that shares the building will remain open once it’s closed off from the damage.

    Michelle – A heavy vehicle like that wouldn’t have to be going very fast to go through the doors of that particular tin and framework building. Truth is, it didn’t go through it at all – it merely pushed in through the double doors a few feet and tore out some flimsy framework around them (and then was stopped by some fairly lightweight debris judging from a lack of skid marks indicating heavy breaking). Had that vehicle been traveling fast, it would have made it all the way into the building and them some. Not every building is a concrete bunker with steel vaulted doors.

    Sounds Fishy to me…. On a more positive note, hope the injured is o.k.

    How can “no charges be filed” when clearly in an intersection someone is at fault? Speed must have been a factor for a vehicle to go through a building.
