MARION COUNTY, Fla. – A man died in a single-vehicle crash after losing control at a curve in the road and hitting a tree, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers said the 47-year-old Ocala man was heading south on County Road 25A Tuesday evening when he entered the curve and went into the grass shoulder.
The FHP said the man over-corrected, causing the pick-up truck to rotate and go across both lanes of CR-25A onto the opposite grass shoulder.
Officials said the truck started to overturn before the top of it hit a tree. The man died as a result of the crash.
According to the crash report, the man was wearing a seatbelt. Troopers have not identified the driver.
