HERMAN WALKER HAS AUG. 20 COURT DATE

Aug 6th, 2008 | 0

By BRUCE COLLIER

Former Walton County Commissioner Herman Walker will appear in court on Aug. 20 on a charge of improperly driving left of the center line. This alleged offense occurred on SR-2 in north Walton County on July 11, when a tractor-trailer driven by Walker collided with a vehicle driven by Eric Buharp. Buharp was killed. His wife, two sons, and another passenger were injured.
An incident report prepared by the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) indicated that Walker lost control of his vehicle while rounding a curve. The vehicle turned on its side and slid into the driver’s side of Buharp’s vehicle. Buharp died in a hospital in Dothan, AL. Walker was reportedly treated for minor injuries, and voluntarily submitted to a blood-alcohol test, the results of which are still pending.
A sidelight to the accident is the apparent presence of a passenger in Walker’s vehicle. An FHP report, cited in another periodical, allegedly states that a David Alford, of Alabama, was in Walker’s vehicle, but was taken from the scene of the accident. The identity of the person who transported Alford, or the location to which he was transported is not known. The FHP is reportedly trying to contact Alford.
