BONIFAY — A single vehicle wreck at 8 a.m. this morning on the corner of State Road 79 and Country Road 280 in Bonifay left one truck mangled but surprisingly left the driver with a head injury, serious but not critical, according to Sgt. J.D. Johnson of the Florida Highway Patrol.

Johnson said that Eric French had stopped his pickup truck on State Road 79 to take a left turn on County Road 280 when Joseph Williams, driving a Rural America dump truck full of dirt topped the hill and was unable to break in time to avoid hitting French.

“So Williams took evasive action by swerving on the east corner of State Road 79 and Country Road 280, also known as Douglas Ferry Road,” said Johnson. “Williams was transported to Doctors Memorial Hospital and then life-flighted to Bay Medical Center for a head injury, which was non-life threatening.”
