Four Traffic Fatalities in the Past 24 Hours

Posted: Updated:

It's been a deadly twenty-four hours on Northwest Florida roadways.  Four people have died in separate traffic accidents in four counties.

In Jackson County, 27-year-old Angel Mickel of Greenwood was killed at 2:30 this morning when her vehicle  ran onto the shoulder of County Road 167 and overturned.   The Florida Highway Patrol says Mickel was not wearing a seatbelt, and was pronounced dead at the scene.  A passenger, who was not belted in either, is listed in serious condition at Jackson Hospital in Marianna.
Just after 9:00 last night 48-year-old Stephen Moore died at Walton County Road 280 and Walton Bridge Road.   The Florida Highway Patrol says the Ponce De Leon man's Ford pickup left the roadway during a sweeping curve.  Moore over-corrected, and his truck collided with a guardrail.   Authorities say the vehicle overturned, partially ejecting Moore.
In Holmes County a late afternoon accident claimed the life of 31-year-old Ashron James Chambers of Westville.   Troopers say Chambers was Southbound on County Road 181, when he failed to negotiate a turn, lost control and collided with several trees.  The FHP says that caused the SUV to spin and roll several times.   A passenger suffered serious injuries.
And in Okaloosa County, 19-year-old Alyssa Helwick was killed, on Rattlesnake Bluff Road at 6:15 last night.   The Highway Patrol says Helwick lost control of her vehicle while traveling at a high rate of speed, hit an embankment and flipped three times.   The woman was ejected.   A passenger suffered minor injuries.
