Apollo Beach man dies in car crash

WIMAUMA — Troopers discovered a 20-year-old Apollo Beach man dead Sunday afternoon in a one-car crash.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, authorities were notified of the crash about 3:40 p.m. but were not sure just when it had happened.

The patrol said the man, whose name has not been released, was driving a Suzuki Forenza west on State Road 674, west of Carlton Lake Road, when for some reason he left the roadway. The car struck a utility pole, then flipped and came to rest near a creek.

The driver died at the scene.

Troopers asked that any witnesses to the crash call the patrol at (813) 631-4020.
