Driver Turns Himself In, Vehicle Recovered In Deadly Mobile Highway Hit And Run

April 7, 2021

The man believed to be responsible for a deadly hit and run accident on Mobile Highway has turned himself in to authorities.

Charles F. Nobles, 34, surrendered at the Escambia County Sheriff’s Office after the vehicle he was allegedly driving was located, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. He has not yet been arrested.

The blue Mustang involved in the crash was recognized by a man who saw the vehicle description in the news, and he called authorities. It was parked outside the WoodSpring Suites in the 2000 block of West Detroit Boulevard with the damage covered by a tarp. Troopers responded to the scene and seized the vehicle, which FHP said had front end damage consistent with the fatal hit and pedestrian crash.

FHP said the 49-year old female pedestrian was struck by a vehicle sometime late Tuesday or early Wednesday on Mobile Highway near Houston Avenue., about one-third of a mile south of Saufley Field Road. The impact of the collision knocked her down into a deep ditch. Victim names are no longer released by FHP.

    The lady who died was the second child out of tree to leave this world in less than a year. She was a dear sweet woman as was her sister. My prayers and heart is with her mother, brother, nieces and nephews. May the Good Lord comfort and give them

    My heart hurts for this woman and her family.
    Why do people think they can get away with something like this.
    You have to have no conscience or care for anyone.
    Thats less than human.
    Prayers for all.

    Surprising, most hit and run drivers are cowards with no morals, such as the one that hit me on my motorcycle on the way home from PJC – left me for dead 46 years ago.

    Maybe they took their secret to the grave, or maybe still out there hiding amongst us with their cowardly secret.

    I woke up in the hospital with no recollection of the one that ran the stop sign and T -boned me , only to find out that my own mom found me 3 blocks from the house as she was headed to pick up my sister from school.

    Still to this day no one came forward to take responsibility for what they did, I hope it still haunts their memory even though after 46 years their cowardice and lack of decency still rules their life..

    I am still here, I have penned this story before some years ago , It only comes to mind these days when I read of another hit and run – Bless the one who lost her life, and bless her family, and friends that now have to endure her absence.

    Kudos to the Good Samaritans who willingly provide assistance and information to Law Enforcement, allowing for the apprehension of those who commit criminal acts.

    I drive that road every day to get to work and if you don’t drive 50-55 miles you have someone tailgating you. Then they fly past you going even faster. The funny thing is that when I catch up to them at the light at Mobile and Fairfield most of them are the right turn lane heading towards the military base – just saying.
