PC Couple Killed in Head-on Collision

A Panama City family is mourning the loss of two loved ones killed in a car crash in Washington County Sunday morning.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers say 83-year-old Magdalene Walsingham and 85-year-old Willie Walsingham were killed on Highway 77 just south of Wausau.

They say Magdalene was driving north when she crossed over into southbound traffic around 11:00 Sunday morning and hit a tractor trailer head-on.

The truck driver, 38-year-old Alvin Powell of Thomasville, Georgia, told authorities he saw the car coming, but there was no where for him to go.

The Walsinghams died at the scene. Powell was not injured.
