Motorcycle Wreck


It's the fifth serious wreck since Saturday in the small town of Esto in Northern Holmes County.

Most have occurred along Highway 79, a commonly used route by Alabama tourists to Panama City Beach.

Just after 1 p.m., a motorcycle slammed into the back of a Chevy Impala. At the time, the car's driver was making a left turn. The impact resulted in the motorcycle driver going airborne over the car.

Eyewitnesses said Richard Thomas of Hartford suffered cuts and bruises and possible broken bones and was taken to an area hospital. The car's driver, Krystal Messer of Bonifay, was not hurt.

The wreck remains under investigation.
