Apollo Beach man who died in crash identified

WIMAUMA — The Florida Highway Patrol identified the Apollo Beach man who died in a one-car crash Sunday afternoon as 20-year-old Travis Jordan Pinegar.

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

The patrol said Pinegar was driving a Suzuki Forenza west on State Road 674, west of Carlton Lake Road, when for some reason he left the roadway and drove onto the road's grass shoulder. 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.
