For the third time in less than 24 hours another motorist has died in a Walton County traffic accident.
The latest fatality came around 10:30 Wednesday night in a single-car accident on Bay Grove Road near Park Road.
The Florida Highway Patrol says a car driven by Joseph Alan Kuykendall, 18, of Santa Rosa Beach was speeding, went into a skid and crashed into a utility pole.
He was pronounced dead an hour later at a south Walton hospital.
Two other people died in two separate accidents in Walton County Wednesday and one other died late last week, making four fatalities in about five days.
