A Cantonment man was critically injured in a single vehicle accident Monday night on I-10 in Santa Rosa County.
The Florida Highway Patrol said 50-year old Robert Merrill McGhee, Jr., was eastbound on I-10 when he entered the grass median at a high rate of speed in an attempt to pass vehicles in the eastbound travel lane. McGhee lost control of his 1993 Mercedes in the median, crossed over the travel lanes of I-10 and slid across a grassy area into multiple trees.
The FHP said McGhee traveled about 500 feet in the median before he lost control.
McGhee was transported to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola. Charges against him are pending, the FHP said.
