Woodville Tragic Crash

By  | 


The three-vehicle accident happened at about 6:45 this morning.

The accident happened right in front of a school bus stop on Woodville Highway, and unfortunately troopers say a group of elementary school students where there for the whole thing.

Troopers say a car was the second vehicle to hit the car driven by the victim. The accident happened on the corner of Selena Road and Woodville Highway.

Troopers say a pickup truck hit the car driven by the victim from behind on the right side, pushing the car into oncoming traffic and into another vehicle. Fortunately, none of the children or parents standing by were injured.

Florida Highway Patrol says seventeen year old Bernard Cooper III of Tallahassee was pronounced dead at the scene.

FHP says the two surviving drivers were taken to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with non-life-threatening injures.
