Cycle Crash Kills One

A motorcycle crash in Holmes County around 2:30 Sunday afternoon claimed the life of a Defuniak Springs man.

The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the accident which happened on South Highway 181 A, just south of Ponce De Leon Springs State Park. That's near the town of Westville.

Troopers say Charles Bishop was wearing his helmet, but they say he failed to negotiate a curve and lost control of the motorcycle.

Holmes County emergency personnel pronounced him dead at the scene.

No other vehicles were involved in the crash. Bishop was taken to Peel Funeral Home in Bonifay.
