Family and friends are mourning the loss of two-year-old Payton Lee Stone who died Sept. 23 from injuries sustained in a car crash Aug. 5. Her mother, Milton resident Ronni Stone, died at age 20 in the crash.
The mother and daughter are survived by Ronni’s parents Tracie and David Goins and her nine brothers and sisters as well as Payton’s father Anthony Worden.
Both were passengers in a vehicle driven by 18-year-old Alexis Penton from Milton. The accident report indicated that Penton’s vehicle was heading northbound on Highway 87 when the driver lost control and the Ford Mustang convertible went in to the southbound lane and was struck by a Mack truck driven by 46-year-old Mark Williams of Milton. The report said Williams suffered only minor injuries.
The incident is still under investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol.
