Early Morning Crash Kills One Area Man

One person died at mid-night Saturday morning in a single car accident on US 331 at Twin Lakes Drive near Defuniak Springs.

Killed in the crash was 68-year-old Charles Ronnie Hudson of Defuniak Springs.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say Hudson was driving south of US-331 when he ran off the road and hit a mail box and a utility pole. His pickup truck then went into a spin, crossed the highway and overturned coming to rest against a large utility pole.

Trooper say alcohol may have been a factor and Hudson was not wearing a seat belt.
