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.

    My name is Mike Moore and my children were involved in this terrible accident today. Though my son has some serious medical issues he will eventually recover. Fortunately my daughter is going to be fine as well. A simple task of dropping his sister off to meet their grandmother turned into much more than ever expected. I ask that everyone be in prayer for Mr. Carrick and his family. An accident, none the less has caused he and his family much heart ache. It is a humbling experience to be grateful for your childrens health while knowing another family is suffering for theirs.Thank you to all of the responders for diligently working on everyone involved..

    I pulled over for the EMS vehicles flying passed me. I knew something bad had to have happened. And Charlie, you are right, we do have the best in Florida! I hope all recovery and are able to move on.
    Nurse, I agree with you 100%. No one knows the details and even we did, we shouldn’t judge one another. I’m glad this one wasn’t fatal.

    Thinking of all of those involved in this accident today and their family members. Those who are posting about “the one who caused the accident”…please don’t be so quick to place blame. You never know what condition that person might be in as well and no one has determined the cause of the accident yet. Pray for all of those involved, regardless.

    It took three hrs. to move every thing.
    May God Bless the driver of the car and his family.
    We also pray for the one that caused this accident.
    Please learn to drive or stay at home.

    We came upon the scene as lifeflight was finding somewhere to land. I will pray for those involved, as well as the family members. We knew it had to be bad. The road was still blocked off after we made a trip to the Cake Shoppe and went shopping at Target on Nine Mile. I pray for the life of the one in critical condition. This is awful.
