One Area Traffic Fatality for the Holiday Weekend

A car-motorcycle crash on Highway 331 near Freeport Sunday night has claimed the life of a Westville man.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 51-year-old Charles Dale Morrison was driving north on the two-lane highway when a car coming out of a church parking lot came into the path of his motorcycle.

Morrison was thrown from the vehicle. He was life-flighted to Sacred Heart Hospital in Pensacola where he died a short while later.

His death is the 25th traffic fatality of the year in Walton County.
