According to Florida Highway Patrol 23 year-old Cassandra L. Baker from Crestview, Florida was the driver in a fatal car accident early Sunday Morning.
FHP and WJHG.com says the accident happened around 1:30 in the morning in Okaloosa County at Old Bethel Road. The driver was going south in a Ford truck on Old Bethel when failed to follow the curve of the road.
FHP says they ran across the median and off the road, then over-corrected when they tried to get back on the road and began rotating in a clockwise direction across both lanes.
The driver hit a pine tree and the truck caught on fire with the driver still inside. FHP has not yet confirmed whether alcohol played a factor in this accident.
We will have more details as soon as they are made available.
