    I have nothing of tangible value to donate, but I do have time and desire. Count me in to help in whatever way I can. In his young life, Chris has lived Hell on earth.

    Daily news article help

    Hi all,
    I am writing a follow-up article today about Chris and his family. If there are friends or relatives who'd like to share memories or thoughts of him and his family, please call my desk phone at 315-4445. We'd like to be able to share with Daily News readers just how tragic this is for their family. If you have photos, that would be nice, too.

    Update from WZEP & another fatality in Walton County

    Walton’s Second Fatality In Two Days

    Foul weather might have played a part in a second Walton County fatality in as many days. Just before 8:30am Friday morning a single vehicle accident took the life of one and sent a passenger to the hospital via Walton EMS. The accident happened at the 83 westbound mile marker on I-10. Walton Fire-Rescue called for an air-ambulance, but the helicopter could not fly due to the area being blanked in bad weather. The initial call came in as a possible ejection. The FHP is working the accident.


    Accident Follow-up

    (I know this is a repeat of what Kurt posted, but it came in with the info above.)

    The FHP says a Freeport woman was killed Thursday afternoon in a multi vehicle accident at the intersection of U.S. 331 and South Bay Grove Road. First News reported on the accident and traffic conditions live Thursday afternoon.

    According to the FHP, around 3pm Thursday, 40-year-old Lori Ann Sivley of Freeport, was traveling north on 331, attempting to make a left turn onto Bay Grove Road. At the same time, 31-year-old Christopher Carter was traveling southbound. Apparently Sivley didn't see the car driven by Carter and turned into its path. Carter attempted to steer to the left and struck the rear before veering into the path of a dump truck traveling behind her.

    The FHP says passenger 30-year-old Gina Dee Carter died in the accident. The driver, Carter, is listed in critical condition. Also injured were 7-year-old Isabella Carter, and 2-year-old Christopher Carter. Sivley was not injured. The dump truck driver, 48-year-old Johnny Mack Roberts, of DeFuniak Springs, was listed with minor injuries. Two air-ambulance helicopters were called to the scene. U.S. 331 was tied up for about 3 hours.

    The FHP says charges are pending. The report also says all involved were wearing a seatbelt.

    The family is being notified as I write this of the Sowal Community out pouring of compassion and help for the Carter Family.

    My phone is ringing off the hook with wonderful Sowallers :wub: wanting to help. Please keep it up...let's show the Carter Family we care and hopefully bring some light into their world after this horrible tragedy.

    I have a 2nd party contact to the family that I spoke with just a little while ago, the kids are at the Children's Hospital on Pensacola and should both be okay, but broken and banged up. Not to mention the loss of their mother and a grieving father. This is just soooo unbelievable.

    I've contacted the press and relayed to them that I don't think anyone should speak of the family without their permission, until then, I will keep quiet. The reporter appreciates that...and I thank you RobynnB.

    The reporter said all info regarding a fundraiser will be published....again, thank you.

    Still want ideas, volunteers, etcc.....please call me

    Let me know too...I have other commitments tomorrow (Fuzz's grandmother's 90th Birthday party tomorrow) and of course HPWA Sunday afternoon. But this family has lost and grieved so much, surely there is something we can do to help.

    For now, though, we can pray for Chris, his children, his mother, and the rest of his family.

    Can I just say that letting them know you are there and that you are praying for them is a great help. The love that you feel in a hug or even a phone call can pull you through rough times.

    Let me know

    I would love to donate some money or anything else that is needed. I had the opportunity to see little Christopher this weekend in the hospital. He is doing well and has been sent home. The nurses were awesome with him and he is just a sweetheart. I was there due to my granddaughter being in the unit for about 36 hours - all ok Thank God! If you know anything, could you please PM me information.

    Thanks!
