It happened at about 5:45 a.m. in front of Treasure Palm Motel on Thomas Drive in Panama City Beach. Florida Highway Patrol troopers say the victim was driving when, for some reason, she ran off the road.
When she pulled the car back on to the road she lost control and hit a van head on. The crash killed the driver of the car instantly. No other serious injuries were reported.
Sources tell Newschannel 7 the victim hadn't lived in Bay County long, just long enough to get a job as a cocktail waitress at a local nightclub.
Alcohol is not suspected to be a factor, right now. Toxicology tests will take about six weeks to come back.
