According to a crash report, the man was driving a 2022 Porsche 911 eastbound on Pioneer Trail, approaching Bridget Street, when the vehicle ran off the roadway to the right. The sports car entered the grass shoulder and struck a mailbox before hitting a fire hydrant, which caused the car to become airborne and collide with a wooden fence, troopers said. The vehicle came to final rest after continuing forward, striking a utility pole and a tree on the eastbound grass shoulder, the report states.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, troopers said. His passenger — a 28-year-old Port Orange man — suffered minor injuries, according to the report. Troopers said both men were wearing seatbelts.

This fatal crash was still being investigated at time of writing, according to FHP.
