Accused wrong-way driver kills single mother in head-on crash, may face additional DUI charges

A wrong-way driver accused of killing a Lake Wales mother in a head-on crash has been arrested and may face additional DUI charges.

Jessica Daigle, a 27-year-old single mom, was on her way home from an overnight shift at a Walmart distribution center in Lake Wales when she was killed by a wrong-way driver early Sunday morning.

"She did everything in her life to the best of her ability. She was the best mother I have ever seen," her brother Noah Daigle told FOX 13.

The crash happened around 3:30 a.m. on State Road 60 near Stokes Road.

Daigle was heading home, driving east, when investigators say 39-year-old Mark Poe of Frostproof hit her head-on.

"Our family, we are spread all around the world at this point, in the states, and Jessica was like that anchor,’ he said.

Along with raising a five-year-old son and working, Daigle was just about to graduate with a certification in welding.

Poe was arrested and charged with vehicular homicide. He could also face a DUI charge depending upon the results of toxicology tests.

Investigators on scene say Poe was slurring his words, his eyes were bloodshot and a bottle of Jack Daniels Whiskey was found close to the crash site.

"It is terrible," said her brother. "It doesn’t make sense, and life doesn’t make sense."
