A Bay County man involved in a vehicle crash Wednesday near Panama City has died.

Troopers say 65-year-old Ronnie Dale Walters, of Panama City Beach, died Thursday morning at Bay Medical Center from injuries sustained after being ejected from his 2004 Jeep Wrangler.

Walters was southbound on Sandy Lane around 5:30 PM Wednesday when he failed to yield the right of way at U.S. Hwy. 98 and pulled into the path of a 2005 Acura driven by 19-year-old Keaton Brent Lamb of Destin.

Lamb steered right in an attempt to avoid the collision but struck the left side of the vehicle.  Walters was ejected upon impact and he landed in the westbound lane.

The highway patrol says no charges have been filed and the accident remains under investigation.
