TAMPA — A man died late Tuesday when his Ford F-150 pickup truck ran off the side of Interstate 275 near West Shore Boulevard and crashed into a concrete barrier and road sign, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The driver, David Michael Reyes, 28, of St. Petersburg was headed north in the interstate's inside lane about 8:44 p.m. when he lost control west of the West Shore exit, troopers said. The truck veered right, into the outside lanes, before veering left and returning to the inside lane.
The truck left the road, rolling onto the grass shoulder and collided with a concrete barrier wall, troopers said. As it kept moving, the truck hit a road sign and rolled several times.
Reyes was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, where he died. It was not clear why he had lost control of the truck, the patrol said.
