Dewey Bernard Thompson, a 49-year-old resident of Bunnell, was killed early Thursday morning when he passed out at the wheel of his car, sending it crashing in the parking lot of the Bunnell branch of the Flagler County Public Library.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Thompson was driving a 2001 Honda 2D, with Robert Thompson, 25, at his side. It was about 6:30 a.m. He was heading east on State Road 100–also known as East Moody Boulevard–when, according to the younger Thompson, Dewey lost consciousness behind the wheel. The Honda then steered right, into the library parking lot, struck a guide wire, a palm tree, and came to a stop.

A paramedic with Flagler County Fire Rescue from Station 92 pronounced Thompson dead at the scene. Both men in the vehicle had been wearing seat belts. The case of the victim’s passing out has not been determined.

It is the fourth local fatality from three vehicle crashes this month, with the death of three Palm Coast residents occurring on June 1, from related accidents on I-95, in Palm Coast and at the St. Johns County Line.

    These are dark days for this country and for our community. Another death by car. I am so sorry for his family.

  2. Ron says:

    Not to be picky, but it kind of sounds like his death was not a result of the crash, but more like the crash was a result of him dying while behind the wheel. Possibly a heart attack?

    In any event, my sympathies go out to the family.

  3. Paula says:

    Prayers to Dewey family and his friends. He was a great man and I was honored to have met him.

  4. The Truth says:

    This is very heartbreaking. Life is precious, please treat it as such. Cherish every moment you have with family and friends, it’s gone before you know it.

    • Rick says:

      Truth,
      You have no idea how true your statements really are. Life is only precious but very delicate at that.
      I, as well as others I’m sure, speak from experience.
