The victim’s name has not been released. The driver of the other vehicle, Randall McBride, was arrested and is being secured at a hospital until he recovers from his injuries. He is being charged with DUI and reckless driving with serious bodily injury.

Although no solid date has been given, Santa Rosa County officials have been told that recycling will likely resume the first two weeks of October. Service was discontinued temporarily after a July 15 fire at Emerald Coast Utilities Authority’s recycling facility.
That is where Santa Rosa County’s recyclables are taken for Waste Pro’s customers in unincorporated portions of the county.
