Altha-- A single vehicle traffic crash in Calhoun County Sunday morning claimed the life of an Altha teenager.

The crash happened on NE Parrish Lake Road, east of State Road 69 at 6:00 Sunday morning. But the accident went unreported for more than two hours. A driver passing by noticed the crash just after 8:30 Sunday morning.

The Florida Highway Patrol has identified the fatality as 19-year-old Zachary Segers of Altha.

Troopers say Segers was westbound on NE Parrish Lake Road when he lost control of his car.

The side of his car hit an oak tree and the impact split the car in two. Segers was not wearing a seatbelt and was partially ejected from the car.

    Just letting everyone know, there is no memorial fund, and no one knows who Tanesha Hayes is, until we sort things out do not donate money

    When I got the call I was lost for words. I still want to wake up from this nightmare and know you are okay. I want to have you send me that "waassssuuuuppp cuh?" text and tell me this wasnt real. Traveling to Aunt Helen's tomo wont be the same without you calling to see where we are at. Or waiting at her house until we arrive. I miss you more & more as time passes and I cant imagine how these next few years will be. Sunday was a rough day, bc not only was it 10yrs since Patrick passed but I lost another person, you, who ment so much to me on the same day. I hope that you reserve a spot for me in Heaven Zack & meet me at the golden gate with your open arms waiting to give me a bear hug like you always did. I hope that you smile that beautiful smile during rainstorms, and place a shelter of protection around us all. I love you so much Zack, & will continue to simply wish for one more day with you!<3
