James Gary Harding, 41, of Poinbury Drive in Palm Coast, is recovering at Halifax Hospital from a serious single-vehicle wreck on State Road 100 west of Bunnell just after midnight Saturday.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol report, Harding was traveling east on County Road 302, toward Bunnell, when he approached the sharp left curve immediately before the road merges, at a stop sign, with State Road 100. Harding was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado pick-up truck. He failed to negotiate the curve, partially rotated counterclockwise and crossed into the east shoulder of 302. He then crossed State Road 100 all the way to the north shoulder of the road and into the ditch. The truck’s left side struck a large tree, overturning the truck, which came to a rest on its roof.

Harding was air-lifted in critical condition to Halifax Hospital. An investigation is continuing.

Later in the day, Harding reportedly had come out of a coma without brain injuries. The report notes that he was wearing a seat belt.

    The curve there at 302 and 100 is a tough one. Glad to hear Mr. Harding is out of the coma without brain injuries. I wish him a full speedy recovery. My thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.

    Certainly Mr. Harding has a get well wish from us. The curve especially at night is hard to see especially if you do not know the area. Drivers run the stop sign and when approaching 302 from 100, cut the turn very short almost going into the east side of the road. That intersection will be the cause of many accidents in the future. It needs a flashing red light and guard rails with arrows showing the sharp turn. Hopefully no one will lose their life there but it is an accident waiting to happen.

    Hi I know I am late but I would like to say my dad has made a full recovery and I want to thank you all for the support. I just looked up my dads info actually and found this thank you so much. I’m glad you supported us in the tough times
