Purdue Spring Breaker Killed at Panama City Beach

3-16-07

One Spring Breaker died and another was critically injured before dawn this morning on Front Beach Road a half mile west of State Road 79.

Panama City Beach police say a pick up truck driven by Jonathon Robbins of Panama City slammed into the back of a car just west of the Sandpiper Beacon Motel around 4:30 this morning.

One person died on the scene. She was identified as Ms. Morgan Guice of Indianna. Beach police did say she was a Purdue student here on spring break.

Ambulance crews rushed a second person from the same car to the trauma unit at a local hospital. She is in critical condition also, and has not been identified publicly yet.

Police say Robbins was injured when he crashed into the rear of the car carrying the spring breakers. That vehicle then crashed into another which in turn hit a parked car. Eye witnesses told NewsChannel Seven Robbins pick up truck was speeding when it crashed into the back of the Purdue student’s car.

The accident this morning is very similar to a rear end crash last week on back beach road that killed three people.

Beach Police say they believe alcohol may have played a role in the crash.
