Double Fatality Crash


Two Ponce de Leon residents are dead from a weather-related traffic crash.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 16-year-old Jon Michael Lawrence was driving a utility truck west along Interstate 10 in Washington Country at mid-afternoon Sunday.

There was heavy rain in the area and the truck apparently hydroplaned, sliding off the road near mile marker 105.

The truck slammed into a tree beside the interstate.

Lawrence and his passenger, 40-year-old Amy Lynn Reeves, died before help arrived.
