A Louisiana man is dead after his motorcycle hit a car in Walton County Saturday near a Walmart Supercenter.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, around 3:30 in the afternoon, John Brimer Jr., 60, of Metairie, Louisiana was heading south on West Hewett Road. He was nearing an intersection by the Walmart Supercenter on West Hewitt Road.

Troopers say a driver, Segei Kalmatcui, 32, of Santa Rosa Beach, had been stopped at the intersection, but drove through it at the same time as Brimer. Brimer, they say, had the right of way.

Brimer's motorcycle hit the side of Kalmatcui's car.

Brimer was taken to Emerald Sacred Heart Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Kalmatcui was not injured. Charges are pending an investigation.
