Man Trapped; Life-flighted rollover on bridge

On Thursday, April 28, around 12:23 p.m., a wreck took place on I-10 on the Suwannee/Madison County bridge at mile marker 267. The wreck had traffic backed up for hours as emergency personnel responded to  the crash scene.

According to FHP reports, H. Varnedoe, 80, of Davie, Fl., was traveling west in the inside lane of I-10 when he veered his vehicle into the inside emergency lane.

Varnedoe reacted by pulling his vehicle too hard to the right.

His over-corrective driving caused his vehicle to travel back into the inside lane, then crossed over into the outside lane.

According to reports, he then overcorrected again, to the left.

His vehicle then traveled back into the inside lane, back into the emergency lane and struck the concrete bridge guardrail, with the front end.

After striking the rail, the vehicle began overturning, coming to a final rest on its left side, facing southwest, blocking both the inside and outside lanes.

Varnedoe was partially ejected and his leg was pinned under his 2003, Ford F-150.

Varnedoe was life-flighted to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital with serious, but not life threatening injuries.

At the time of the wreck, Varnedoe was not wearing a seatbelt and has been charged with failure to maintain a single lane while driving.
