Paramedic injured in wreck on way to work Tuesday
A Liberty County paramedic didn’t make it to work but her co-workers came to her aid after she lost control of her car and hit a tree Tuesday morning in Bristol.
Melissa Brown, 42, of Bristol was traveling east on SR 20 on her way to the Hosford EMS Office shortly after 7 a.m. when she apparently fell asleep, according to FHP Trooper David Cox.
Brown’s 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser had just come out of the four-lane when it crossed into the westbound lane of SR 20, hit a tree and overturned at Shoemake Lane.
Brown, who was not wearing a seatbelt, sustained minor head injuries and other less serious wounds. She was transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital by ambulance and is reported to be in stable condition.
The car was totaled.
