Crash Kills North Walton Man

A 3 A.M. traffic crash in Walton County has resulted in the death of a DeFuniak Springs man.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the crash happened Tuesday morning on Walton County Highway 1087 just north of county road 2 A.

The fatality is identified as Ronald S. Murphy.

He was a passenger in a pick up truck which failed to negotiate a curve, drifted on the shoulder, over-corrected and re-entered the roadway. The pick up truck then ran over to other side of the highway, became airborne, overturned several times and came to rest against a pole barn.

Troopers say they have not yet identified who was driving the vehicle. Positive ID is pending completion of the crash investigation
