The Florida Highway Patrol says that 40-year-old Stephanie Recoy was killed in a fatal accident on US-90, just west of Baum Road. It happened around 7 this morning.

Recoy was heading eastbound on U.S.-90 (State Road 10) in a 2011 Dodge SUV when, for an unknown reason, Recoy left the eastbound lane and entered the south shoulder. The SUV continued eastbound on the shoulder and the right side of the SUV struck a tree. After impact with the first tree, the SUV rotated clockwise off of the tree and overturned. The roof of the SUV then struck a second tree. The SUV was found at final rest facing southwest with it's roof against the second tree on the south shoulder.

It is unknown at this time if alcohol was a factor, according to the FHP report. Relatives have been notified. A seat belt was in use. There is no word yet on what caused the accident.

Recoy was the only person in the vehicle.
