LAKE COUNTY, Fla. – A single-vehicle crash left two men dead overnight Saturday when a car hit a tree in Lake County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The FHP said a 30-year-old man from Port St. Lucie, who was driving, and a 25-year-old Belleview man were traveling just after midnight in an Audi on Avenida Central in Lady Lake when the driver failed to negotiate a curve.
After the Audi left the roadway, troopers said it went onto the shoulder and the front of the car hit a tree. Officials said the car began to overturn when its roof hit another tree.
Both men were wearing seat belts, according to the report, but the two men died as a result of the crash.
The crash remains under investigation.
