In an accident last week shortly after midnight, a 15-year-old West Port High School student was killed.

Destiny Tyler was a passenger in a 2007 Chevrolet driven by Jeffrey Foiles, also of Ocala. The car was eastbound on NE 90th Street Road about one mile east of NE 58th Avenue when, according to an FHP report, the driver was unable to maintain control coming out of a curve. The car struck a fence line and then struck a tree.

Tyler was taken to Shands in critical condition, where she later died.
