Emerald Coast Sees Car Crashes in High Volumes In Recent Weeks

I am not sure how this area can better serve our visitors and locals when we have such high traffic volumes. We are in the middle of summer and the roads are packed. The past several weeks were very busy for the area and the amount of car crashes showed how busy the area was.

MID-BAY BRIDGE CRASH

The Florida Highway Patrol was called out to three serious crashes over the weekend. One person was killed and another seriously injured after a Ford Explorer overturned on the Mid-Bay Bridge on-ramp from Lakeshore Drive in Bluewater Bay. Reports state no one was wearing seat belts, and alcohol could have been a factor. 

FATAL MOTORCYCLE ACCIDENT

The next serious crash occurred in Milton when a motorcyclist failed to negotiate a curve on Red Rock Road and hit an embankment, which caused him to be thrown. He died at the scene, even while wearing a helmet.

CHUMUCKLA HIGHWAY COLLISION

An accident in Santa Rosa County sent five people to area hospitals. The accident occurred on Chumuckla Highway, near Barley road. A Jeep struck the front of an Infiniti sedan. Following the impact, both vehicles spun and the Jeep overturned. The crash left five people hospitalized. 

If you see traffic slowing ahead ... then start slowing down so you don't have to do an abrupt slowdown which can cause an accident. Be aware of your surroundings so you can navigate abrupt turns or traffic changes. Beyond alertness, drivers can also leave earlier or later to avoid the busiest travel times, carpool or use public transport.

If you or a loved one have been injured in a auto accident, do not hesitate to contact the attorneys at Brannon & Brannon.
