Teen On Minibike, Pickup Truck Collide On Jacks Branch Road

June 8, 2021

A teen on a minibike and the adult driver of a pickup truck were both seriously injured in a collision Tuesday afternoon along Jacks Branch Road.

The truck and dirt bike collided in the 1800 block of Jacks Branch Road just north of Vantage Road about 4:40 p.m. The dirt bike came to rest near a pine tree in the front yard of a residence. The pickup truck slammed into a pine tree a few feet away.

The teen was airlifted to a Pensacola hospital by LifeFlight; the pickup truck driver was also transported in serious condition.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash and has not released further information. The Molino and Cantonment stations of Escambia Fire Rescue and Escambia County EMS responded.

    Instead of speaking about money and replaceable material items involved we should pray for all involved and their families. The family of the young boy are friends of my family and great people. I’m not sure about the other family involved but you all have prayers and love from my family to your’s.

    Before anyone jumps to conclusions. First, you weren’t there, second, this accident was not caused by a careless teen. & third, he was not riding in the road. This was a freak accident. Please keep praying for all parties involved.

    ELW, I can appreciate your perspective, but this is simply part of the rural lifestyle. This has been going on around here since I was a kid on a minibike, back in 69.

    The real danger on Jack’s Branch Road is high speed. There are people on bicycles, horses, horse drawn wagons, golf carts, you name it.

    Prayers for the injured.

    Young people ride small vehicles along Jacks Branch Road all the time. Very dangerous. Somehow or another, they appear to escape being stopped by HP or SD.

    Teen is in stable condition. Do not know the condition of the driver. Crash happened in my front yard.
