Walton County Man Dies In Crash

DeFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla. Defuniak springs police are investigating a fatal crash that happened on Sunday.

44-year-old Defuniak Springs resident Tony Hayes was killed when his car collided with the undercarriage of a semi-tractor trailer.

The Semi was driven by 39-year-old Damon Wiggs of South Carolina who was traveling north on U.S. 331.

Wiggs told officials he exited I-10 to fill up on gas, but as he crossed lanes, he saw Hayes' car drive right into his path.

Neither Wiggs nor his passenger 37-year-old Darold Grimmett were injured.

The investigation is on-going and charges are pending.
