Clermont man, 21, killed in crash

Jared Newton pronounced dead at scene, FHP says

GROVELAND, Fla. - A 21-year-old Clermont man was pronounced dead early Friday morning at the scene of a crash.

Jared Newton was traveling eastbound on Cherry Lake Drive when he lost control of his vehicle and traveled off the road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Newton over-corrected and traveled into the westbound lanes, back across the eastbound lanes and then onto the south shoulder before the vehicle overturned, said troopers. 

Newton was ejected from the car, and a medical examiner pronounced him dead at the scene.

The FHP is still investigating the crash to determine if the crash was alcohol-related.
