A Greenville man was life-flighted last week following a single-vehicle rollover.
Florida Highway Patrol reported that on Thursday, January 27 at 1:15 p.m., Marcos Tuleio Barela, 28, of Greenville, was driving a 2000 Ford Explorer SUV westbound on US-221, 1.4 miles south of Bailey Road.
FHP estimated that Barela was traveling at 75 miles per hour when the vehicle ran off of the roadway onto the east shoulder and continued to travel northbound for 386 feet before re-entering the roadway.
The vehicle traveled across the roadway and Barela attempted to regain control, but over-corrected the steering to the right.
The SUV began to rotate in a clockwise direction and began to overturn, coming to a rest on the west shoulder of the roadway facing east.
Barela was life-flighted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital for treatment of serious injuries.
Assisting on the scene were Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office deputies, Jefferson County Fire Rescue and Jefferson County EMS.
FHP reported that the crash was not alcohol-related and Barela was wearing a seatbelt.
He was charged with failure to drive in a single lane. The vehicle was totaled.

Kelsi Reams will host her 8th Annual Hot Chocolate Sale to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. Kelsi came up with the idea when she was seven years old. Her baby sister, Abby was diagnosed with CF the year before and she began asking questions about when Abby would not need therapy anymore. Her parents, Joe and Kathy explained that there was not a cure for CF and that Abby would need continual treatment until there was one. Kelsi replied that they should get some “cure” and give it to her. Her parents then explained that the limiting factor was money, that scientists were very close to developing a cure but that funds were needed to continue the research.
Kelsi’s first idea was to sell lemonade but was told she wouldn’t have many customers with it being winter so she decided to go with a hot chocolate sale. Joe and Kathy supported this idea and the rest is history. Kelsi’s cousins, aunts, uncles and friends have pitched in every year to help work the sale. Kelsi’s sisters Chloe, 9 and Abby, 8 are now on board and will be working the sale.
Abby gets numerous medications daily as well as chest percussion therapy 2-3 times a day to keep her lungs clear. She goes to Shands hospital every 4 months for a battery of tests to see how the disease is affecting her body and so far is doing extremely well.
Cystic fibrosis is a genetically inherited disease which causes the endochrine glands of the body to produce secretions that are drier than normal. This results in plugged airways in the lungs and leaves them susceptible to bacterial infection and progressively severe lung disease. It also interferes with digestion and requires pancreatic enzymes to be taken with meals and snacks.
The Hot Chocolate Sale will be this Saturday, Jan 29, from 8am – 2pm at Scott Realty in Greenville. If you are unable to attend but would like to send a donation please mail to 418 NW Sand Dollar Way; Greenville, Florida; 32331 and make checks payable to Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
