Fatal Accident on I-10

An accident on Interstate 10 claimed the lives of two people yesterday.

The Florida Highway Patrol says poor road conditions caused by Hurricane Katrina may have played a part in the accident.

It happened just inside the Walton and Holmes County Line, several miles from Ponce de Leon.

Two people inside the van were pronounced dead at the scene.

The van they were riding in ran off the interstate, crashing into a patch of trees.

Eyewitnesses say the van appeared to hydroplane.

The names of the victims have not been released.
