Statement on Joshua Floyd Passing
Joshua Floyd was a wonderful young man. While in high school (Godby) he was a member of the Students Against Destructive Decisions, (SADD) and the Key club, both of which I was faculty advisor. He was also in the Jr. ROTC program. He was a positive role model for his peers, did so much for his school and community, and his smiling face cheered anyone who came in contact with him. He will be missed.

Taylor County, FL -- May 28, 2012 --
Weather played a role in an accident that killed a former Godby High School student.
Joshua P. Floyd, 20, was driving westbound on U.S. Highway 27 in Taylor County near James Beathea Road at about 12:50 p.m. Monday afternoon.
A 2008 Honda Civic, driven by David Sasnett, 27, of Athens, Georgia was in the eastbound lane. Sasnett's vehicle hydroplaned on the wet road and entered the westbound lane. The right side of the vehicle struck Floyd's motorcycle.
Floyd was wearing a helmet at the time and alcohol did not play a factor.
The Florida Highway Patrol was assisted by Taylor County EMS and the Taylor County Sheriff's Office
