Trailer Hits Highway 4 Bridge
October 11, 2009
Highway 4 at Canoe Creek was closed for a short time Sunday afternoon after a driver lost control of a utility trailer hauling a pickup truck, and the trailer struck the bridge.
The accident happened about 12:45 between Bratt and Byrneville. Authorities say the driver of a Mercury Mountaineer that was pulling the trailer lost control on the steep hill approaching the bridge. That’s when the trailer spun around, hitting the bridge and the back of the Mountaineer.
The trailer was removed from the bridge a short time after the accident by an individual with a tractor.
There were no injuries in the crash. The accident is still under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol. The Escambia County Sheriff’s Office also responded.
