HOLMES COUNTY - It happened on I-10, westbound near mile marker 110, shortly before 8:00 Friday evening, June 3, 2022.

FHP said in a news release that the worker was parked on the emergency shoulder, changing flat tires to a trailer carrying a boat. The teen was Corey Reynolds of Moonlight Automotive and Diesel Repair and he was assisting as another employee at the scene.

“The driver was traveling west, in the inside westbound lane of I-10, and appears to have traveled off the roadway and onto the rumble strips,” per the release.

The report lists the driver as a 41-year-old woman, from Alford, Fla.

The woman attempted to get the vehicle back on track, causing it to rotate in a clockwise manner as it traveled across both westbound lanes of I-10 and onto the emergency lane.

While entering the emergency lane, the car collided with the teen and the rear of the vehicle he was working on, leaving him deceased.
