A 19-year-old Flomaton woman was killed Friday night, December 22, after she was thrown from her car, then twice run over by drivers who did not see her lying in the roadway.
According to Florida Highway Patrol reports, Daizee Brooke Angus was driving a 2007 Chevy Impala eastward on Escambia County (Fla.) Road 4A around 8 p.m. when she “failed to negotiate a left curve” and lost control of the vehicle.
The Flomaton woman’s car reportedly ran off the road and onto the south shoulder. She apparently over-corrected in trying to regain control of the vehicle, which crossed the road, overturned and rolled over “approximately four times” before coming to rest on its roof.
Reports show that Angus, who was not wearing a seatbelt, “was ejected between the third and fourth rollovers” and landed in the roadway. She was subsequently run over by two other drivers, 25-year-old Haley N. Smith of Flomaton and Alton S. Wiggins, 19, of McDavid, both of whom told troopers they did not see the woman.
Reporting troopers did not speculate as to whether Angus died from the impact of the ejection or from being struck by the other two vehicles.
Charges are pending the results of the FHP traffic homicide investigation.
Friend and classmate Emily Turner said Daizee would have graduated from Flomaton High School this year. She will be missed.
“She was the sweetest person you’d ever meet,” Emily said. “She was very selfless and loving. She’d always make sure you were having a good day, even if she wasn’t. She’d make sure everyone knew they were loved. She was a wonderful person, and I’m honored to have been able to know her and be her friend.”
