Walton County Crash Kills One

A Paxton man was killed just before dawn Saturday morning in a single car traffic accident.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash killed 32 year old Bruce L. Paul.

It happened at 5:40 AM on State Road 85 just north of County Road 147 in north Walton County.

Troopers say Paul was driving south on State Road 85 when he failed to negotiate a curve, left the roadway and spun sideways into two large pine trees.

His car then rotate around the trees and overturned. He was not wearing a seatbelt.
