Three injured in U.S. 31 wreck (with photos)Published 11:02am Thursday, November 14, 2013
A one-vehicle wreck on U.S. 31 north injured three people Thursday morning.
A Ford F150 pickup truck apparently left the road, hit a tree and landed in a ditch. The wreck occurred about four miles north of the Country Club of Brewton.
Two adults and a child were injured. Two people were transported to D.W. McMillan by ambulance and the third person was transported by LifeFlight.
Appleton Volunteer Fire Department Chief Mike Tyler said the injuries were not serious, but he did not know the extent of the injuries to the person transported by helicopter.
“It appears they just lost control in the curve. This is known as a really bad curve with numerous accidents,”
About eighteen to 20 people worked the scene from Appleton Volunteer Fire Department, D.W. McMillan, Escambia County Rescue Squad, LifeFlight, the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department and state troopers.
