One dead after motorcycle hits tree
A Walton County woman is dead after a motorcycle accident Sunday afternoon.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Dani Roberta Devine, 62, of Santa Rosa Beach, had recently purchased a trike motorcycle and was learning how to operate it.
They say Devine attempted to drive the motorcycle along Magnolia Creek Road, but once she began moving forward, she made a steering correction to the right to avoid a collision with a parked vehicle.
Troopers say it appears Devine then lost control of the motorcycle causing it to leave the paved portion of the roadway. After leaving the paved portion of the roadway, they say Devine collided with a tree.
Devine died from her injuries.
