BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – A 72-year-old man was killed Sunday in a crash on State Road A1A near Coral Sea Way.

The Florida Highway Patrol said Tad Moran was driving his Toyota Camry south on SR A1A when he suffered a medical episode and crashed into the back of a Honda truck driven by Trisha Marie Hee, 27.

Troopers said Moran then ran off the road to the shoulder and ran into a block wall.

It's unclear if Moran's death was due to his medical episode or injuries suffered in the crash.

Hee was not injured.
