A single-vehicle crash involving an SUV caused serious injuries to two juveniles at the intersection of Holmes Boulevard Northwest and Beal Parkway on Monday morning, according to the Fort Walton Beach Police Department.
At approximately 7:51 a.m., the department’s Traffic Homicide Unit responded to the crash that police say was possibly caused by an unknown vehicle that made a left turn from Holmes onto Beal directly into the path of the SUV.
- The SUV then crashed into Top Gun Muffler, causing significant structural damage that was deemed unsafe by the city.
None of the three occupants were wearing seatbelts. The two juveniles struck the windshield with their heads and sustained serious injuries.
The driver was cited for not properly restraining the minors with seat belts, as required by Florida law for those under 18.
The crash investigation remains ongoing. Police are requesting anyone with knowledge or video footage to assist.
Those with information should contact Detective M. Stirling at 850-833-9546.
