Comments Off

An officer of the Pensacola Police Force flipped his police cruiser while driving on Interstate 10 on January 27th.

It had rained most of the day resulting in standing water on the road. Officer Young was driving 45 miles an hour, which is the speed limit, when he hit a patch of water. His car hydroplaned, ran into the concrete barrier, and flipped over. He suffered minor injuries. There was approximately $20,000 in damage to the vehicle.
