According to reports from witnesses, the vehicle may have flipped as many as two times coming to rest in an upright position. It is believed the vehicle may have blown a tire while traveling north on U.S. 31 just north of the old Sierra Mattress Company location when the driver apparently lost control of the vehicle. Torn sod and debris could be seen scattered along several hundred feet leading up to the final resting place of the vehicle.

Members of the Escambia County Sheriff’s Department, the Brewton Police Department, D.W. McMillan Ambulance Service, Appleton Volunteer Fire Department and the Escambia County Rescue Squad responded to the accident. Alabama State Troopers officials also responded to the scene.

An investigation into the cause of the accident will remain open.
