The Sixth Fatality Four Days on Area Roads

A Chipley woman is dead after a traffic crash involving a tractor trailer Monday morning.

It happened at 9 a.m. on Highway 77 about three miles south of Graceville.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 58-year-old Martha Carole Hawk was heading north, when her car drifted across the center line. It ran up under the rear wheels of the southbound big-rig, killing Hawk at the scene.

The truck driver, 30-year-old Robert Wayne Watson of Panama City, received minor injuries.

Troopers have not filed any charges.

It is the sixth traffic fatality in this area in the past four days.
