Three Cantonment residents were injured in a serious traffic crash Saturday morning, including a man trapped in his nearly demolished vehicle for about 45 minutes.
The head-on crash happened about 10:30 a.m. on Highway 297A at Eight Mile Creek Road, just northwest of the Nine Mile and Pine Forest Road intersection.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 20-year old Tyler Moore was eastbound on Highway 297A in a 2003 Toyota Tundra when he veered into the lane occupied by a 200 Chevrolet Malibu driven by 31-year old Davis Karrick of Cantonment.
Karrick’s car came to rest upright a ditch next to the roadway. It took first responders from multiple stations of Escambia Fire Rescue, including a special operations team, about 45 minutes extricate Karrick from the car. He was transported to Sacred Heart Hospital by LifeFlight as a “trauma alert” in critical condition.
Tyler Moore was seriously injured in the crash, while his passenger, 17-year old Kayla Moore of Cantonment, received minor injuries. The brother and sister were transported by ambulance to West Florida Hospital.
Tyler Moore was cited by the FHP for failure to maintain a single lane.
