BELLEVIEW, Fla – A Belleview man and woman have been reported dead in a single vehicle accident on County Road 209 just before 1 a.m Saturday, October 14.

According to the accident report released by the Florida Highway Patrol, Courtney Turner, 39, of Belleview was traveling at a high rate of speed northbound on County Road 209. Turner’s vehicle went off the outside edge of the road, and Turner is reported to have over-corrected to the left. This over-correction resulted in the driver losing control of the vehicle, which then went off the highway onto the west shoulder of the road, where it collided with a tree, rotated, and finally came to a stop on the road.

Courtney Turner was reported dead at the scene. Turner’s passenger, 39-year-old Nakia Morris of Belleview, was also reported to have died at the scene.
