A late Tuesday night traffic crash on Highway 30A in South Walton County has killed a Santa Rosa Beach man.
The crash happened just before midnight on Walton 30A east of Acadia Street.
Killed was 41 year old Mark P. Doherty.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Doherty was driving an open top jeep with no side doors attached. He was not wearing lap and shoulder restraints when the jeep went out of control, left the paved road and the right side struck a guard rail. It then went into a spin throwing Doherty out.
Troopers say he was critically injured and died a short while later at Sacred Heart Hospital at Santa Rosa Beach.
