Walton Traffic Crash Fatality

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say a semi driver caused a wreck that killed a Santa Rosa Beach man in south Walton County.

They say Ricky Waters was unloading his flatbed on the crest of a hill and blocking the eastbound lane of County Road 30-A.

Twenty-four-year-old Joseph Eddy was eastbound, didn't see the truck in time and slammed his pickup into the back of the trailer.

Eddy died at sacred heart hospital a short time later.

The accident investigation continues. Charges are pending.
