ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. – A 65-year-old Eustis man died Saturday following a crash not far from Magnolia Park at Lake Apopka, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to a crash report, the Eustis man was traveling westbound on South Binion Road while a pickup truck — driven by a 38-year-old Apopka man — was headed eastbound, both approaching Sheaf Road.

Troopers believe the Apopka man failed to maintain his lane and entered the westbound lane in the direct path of the sedan driven by the Eustis man, which caused the front of the pickup to strike the left front of the sedan.

The truck overturned onto its right side and its driver was hospitalized with minor injuries, troopers said. The Eustis man was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead, the report states. Troopers believe the Eustis man was not wearing a seatbelt.

FHP is still investigating the fatal crash.
