CLERMONT, Fla. – A 31-year-old man was killed Tuesday night in Lake County in a three-vehicle crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

The FHP said Matthew Pineau, of Kissimmee, died in the crash, which occurred around 9 p.m. on U.S. Highway 192 near Bali Boulevard.

Pineau's passenger was taken to a hospital in serious condition, troopers said.

The drivers of the other two cars suffered minor injuries, the FHP said.
