A 75-year-old Carrabelle woman was flown to Bay Medical Center in critical condition Thursday afternoon, after her sport utility vehicle was struck head-on along U.S. 98, about one mile east of State Route 65.
A press release from Florida Highway Patrol’s Troop H reported that multiple witnesses saw a sedan, later determined to be driven by a 32-year-old Apalachicola man, “went to pass several vehicles at one time” as the vehicle headed east. The front of the sedan then hit the front left of the SUV.
The driver of the sedan was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with minor injuries. The driver of the SUV was flown to Bay Medical Center where she was listed in critical condition and undergoing surgery.
FHP was assisted by the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office, and Weems Emergency Management Services.
