Man dies in early morning eastern Hillsborough crash

DOVER — A 24-year-old Polk County man was killed early Thursday when he crashed while driving on State Road 60 in eastern Hillsborough County.

Shawn Michael Montgomery of Lake Wales was headed west about 4 a.m. in a 2012 Dodge Avenger when he lost control of the car near Marge Owens Road, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The car veered onto the center median, then back into the westbound lanes before shooting back across the median.

The car then veered onto the grass on the road's south side before hitting a tree, troopers said. Montgomery was pronounced dead at the scene.

It was not immediately clear what caused him to lose control of the car. The crash remained under investigation.
