Another Tragic Car Accident Reported in Walton County

The Northwest Daily News reports on another tragic car accident that occurred on Tuesday afternoon in DeFuniak Springs. According to the news source, just after 2 p.m, a SUV turned in front of a tractor trailer at a busy city intersection, causing a three-car pileup that left two people in critical condition and two more seriously injured. The truck was traveling east on U.S. Highway 90 "carrying a heavy load of feed" to a nearby poultry processing plant when the driver of the SUV turned left from U.S. Highway 331 in front of it. The collision was so significant that it sent the SUV into a third vehicle. Both vehicles ended up on the sidewalk north of the intersection, where a traffic signal ended up being damaged. Two people inside the SUV, including the driver, had to be extricated, the police department release said. A total of four occupants were transported to hospitals in Pensacola. Two, including the woman driving the SUV, required emergency surgery and were listed in critical condition on Tuesday. The other two passengers were listed in serious condition. The driver of the third car was taken from the scene by a family member to Sacred Heart on the Emerald Coast Hospital and later released, according to reports. The truck driver was not hurt. As noted in the news release from the Defuniak Springs police department, the crash is still being investigated by DeFuniak Springs Police and charges are pending.

According to mypanhandle.com, witnesses reported that the driver of the SUV was facing a solid green light at the time of the crash. The left green indicator had expired prior to the vehicle turning. Based on the witness accounts and other crash indicators, the driver of the SUV failed to yield right of way when making a left turn.

Our hope is for all who were involved to have a quick and speedy recovery. Remember if you or a loved one have been injured in an car accident, contact Dennis or Paul Brannon.  With over 45 years combined experience, they will fight for the compensation you deserve.
