Local Civic Leader Injured

Tommy Grainger, wife Rosie and son Randall injured in wreck
On Monday, May 10, Tommy Grainger and his family were on their way to Dothan when tragedy suddenly struck them. They were northbound on Highway 73, just a few miles out of Marianna when the car apparently ran off the pavement, causing Grainger to lose control. The car then left the roadway and struck a tree, head-on. Reportedly Grainger was adjusting his seat belt when he lost control.
At this time it appears Mr. Grainger suffered a broken pelvis, an injury to his head, and broken ribs, while Mrs. Grainger had a broken arm, broken ribs, and other injuries. Their son, Randall suffered a broken arm. All incurred bruises and abrasions from the incident. After initial treatment Tommy and Rosie were taken to Tallahassee Memorial for treatment, while Randall was admitted to Jackson Hospital.
Mr. Grainger is a well known Marianna businessman, a leader in many civic organizations including Optimist and American Legion. He usually drives one of his popular antique cars in local parades.
