WASHINGTON COUNTY - A Chipley man was fatally injured in a one-vehicle crash that occurred early Sunday morning.
Florida Highway Patrol reports Travis Taylor Hamm, 28, was traveling south on State Road 77 in the area of Mobile Swamp Road around 5:30 a.m. when he lost control of his 2000 Chevy Tahoe while exiting a sweeping downhill left curve that transition into a straight, level roadway.
FHP reports the SUV traveled onto the west grassy shoulder, continuing southwest and rotating clockwise into the wood line that borders the shoulder.
Upon entering the woods line, the vehicle struck an oak tree with its left side, ejecting Hamm into the wood line.
FHP reports Hamm was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, and alcohol was not a factor.
