Berrien County - An Alapaha teen was killed after he lost control of his car in the rain.
State Troopers say 17-year-old Martin Gonzalez was driving on Highway 129 just North of Alapaha Saturday evening.
Gonzalez hit a standing pool of water, hydroplaned and slammed into a tree.
Heavy showers have been almost a daily occurrence lately.
Police say the best way to steer through the rain is to slow down, make sure your tires have proper tread and know how to work your brakes on wet pavement.
"Sometimes if you step on the brakes when it rains, it may pull to one side or another. If your car does hydroplane though, take your foot off the brake and steer it until you feel your tires re-grip on the road. Then you can safely reapply the breaks," says Sgt. Earl Durrance.
30-year-old Jorge Escueero of Moultrie was also in the wreck.
