Alabama Man Killed In Fiery Holmes County Crash

Posted: Updated:

An Alabama man is dead after a fiery car crash in Holmes County, north of Ponce De Leon and just south of the state line.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, troopers responded to the scene on State Road 81 at 11:03 a.m. Sunday.  The FHP said James S. Wilson, 49, of New Brockton, Alabama was southbound on SR 81 when his van left the roadway, struck a tree and burst into flames.

Witnesses told troopers that the driver did not take corrective action after driving onto the shoulder of the road, leading the FHP to suspect a medical condition might have contributed to the crash.
