Tuesday, July 13 th – According to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP), a Mobile, Alabama man was seriously injured following an accident on I-10 involving a semi tractor/trailer.
The truck accident happened just west of Marianna when 57-year-old Grady Ankerson, who was driving a 2006 Toyota truck, lost control of his vehicle, which hydroplaned across the center median and struck the front end of an oncoming vehicle. The second vehicle, which was a 1999 Volvo semi tractor/trailer, was being driven by 39-year-old Karl Sperlich of Jacksonville, Florida. While Ankerson was reported to have suffered serious injuries, Sperlich only suffered minor injuries.
According to the report by the FHP, Ankeron was heading west when he lost control of his vehicle, while Sperlich was traveling east. An investigation lead officers to believe that Ankerson was traveling too fast to handle the wet conditions of the highway. Immediately following the accident, no charges were reported to have been filed.
