Trio Dies in Head-On Wreck

Early Wednesday morning three people were killed in a head-on crash near Crestview.

It happened just after midnight at the corner of Valley Road and Wisteria Avenue in north Okaloosa County.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 19-year-old Ahmed Waheed Hammad and 18-year-old Katherine Grace Palmer, both of Crestview, were killed when Hammad tried to pass another car in a no passing zone.

Troopers say Hammad ran head-on into a car driven by 25-year-old Jermaine Allen Hawkins.

A passenger in Hawkins' car, 25-year-old Kenyia Bess of Crestview, was taken to a hospital where he later died.
