BAKER — A Milton man is receiving treatment at North Okaloosa Medical Center for serious injuries after a traffic accident this morning.
Raymond Penton, 50, of Milton, walked toward Baker Auto Parts Store, 1304 Georgia Ave., around 9:15 a.m. and Matthew McKinney, 20, of Crestview, accidentally struck him, according to a Florida Highway Patrol media release.
McKinney was driving east on State Road 4, preparing to turn right into the auto parts store's parking lot, but the 1989 Chevrolet truck's brakes had a “catastrophic failure” and the vehicle did not stop, the FHP release said.
The truck rolled backward into State Road 4 after impact, according to the release. No charges will be filed.
