Rollover traps two in car

Two teens were transported via Life Flight to Sacred Heart Hospital following a two-car rollover Thursday on Interstate 10 west of Highway 87.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Ben McCaslin Blackmon Jr., 20, of Memphis, was driving a Nissan Xterra eastbound on the inside lane of Interstate 10, when he drifted into the grass median.

When correcting to the right, he entered the outside lane of Interstate 10 and collided with an F-150 driven by Clifford Dylan Brock, 23, of Navarre.

Both vehicles overturned, according to FHP. The F-150 landed in a ditch while the Xterra rolled over multiple times and collided with a sign. After hitting the sign, the Xterra continued to roll over.

Blackmon and his front passenger, Jack Hoffman, 19, of Jackson, Miss., were trapped in the vehicle when police arrived. Hoffman sustained critical injuries, and a second passenger, William Kennedy, 19, of Madison, Miss., sustained serious injuries. The teens were transported via Life Flight to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola. Blackmon sustained serious injuries and was transported to West Florida Hospital where he was later released.

Brock sustained minor injuries and was not transported.

Charges are pending.
