A silver Jeep crashed in front of the Gulfport Welcome Center on Sunday, July 25, resulting in serious but non-life-threatening injuries for the driver and passenger, according to police. It is unclear at this time if there was another driver involved in the accident.
The driver, Daniel Flack, 52, collided with a street sign and lone palm tree before slowing at 3101 Beach Blvd. S. around 4 p.m. David Flack was the passenger.
“It appears the vehicle was traveling at a high rate of speed before the collision,” said Gulfport Public Information Officer Thomas Woodman. “The driver was issued a citation for careless driving.”
The collision resulted in wreckage debris around the Welcome Center’s parking area. Both driver and the passenger were transported to Bayfront Hospital.
