Elderly Man Dies in Single Vehicle Mishap

By  | 

A Gadsden County man died late Saturday morning in a single car traffic crash on State Road 12 at Beare's Blueberry Lane.

Killed was 79 year old Clarence Theodore Farris of Havana.

Troopers say Farris was headed east of State Road 12 when he drifted onto the shoulder of the highway. He over-corrected and traveled across to the other side of the highway, went down into a ditch and overturned.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the driver was not wearing a seat-belt at the time of the crash.
