DEATH INVESTIGATION UNDERWAY
The victim has been identified as 75-year old John H. Stevens of 3737 Glen Chambers Road in Florala, Alabama. Witnesses say they saw his truck try to drive across a washed out road before a strong, deep current swept the truck off the pavement.
Rescue workers were thwarted in their attempts to get to the truck by blocked, washed out roads and fast-moving, rising waters.
An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday by the Okaloosa/Walton Medical Examiner's Office.
