It was a deadly weekend for traffic crashes in Escambia County.

Two crashes left three dead – including a Cantonment, Fla., teen and two Atmore residents – and a toddler injured.

Christopher Henry Lowe, 37, and Shalonda Trenee Rudolph, 22, both of Atmore died in a two-vehicle crash at 9:45 p.m. Friday on Jack Springs Road when Lowe’s 1991 Chevrolet struck Rudolph’s 2005 Nissan. The two were pronounced dead at the scene while the Nissan’s three-year-old passenger, who was not in a child restraint, was ejected and transported to North Baldwin Hospital for treatment. The child’s condition was not available on Monday.

The second occurred Saturday at approximately 2:45 p.m. on Old Castleberry Road, north of Brewton.

Accident reports from the Alabama State Troopers show Savannah Buck was doing “stunts” while riding in the roadway when she lost control and fell off a 2004 Polaris four-wheeler. Buck, who was not wearing a helmet at the time of the crash, was transported to D.W. McMillan Hospital where she later died from her injuries.
