LARGO — A 31-year-old man riding in a car was killed early Sunday when the vehicle veered out of control, police said.
The accident happened about 12:45 a.m. on Starkey Road just south of Ulmerton Road.
Largo police said a 2008 Chevy was southbound on Starkey when it slid sideways into a culvert. The vehicle went airborne and rolled at least once, causing the passenger to be partially ejected from the vehicle.
The 31-year-old passenger, Shannon Ollek, was pronounced dead at the scene. Both occupants of the Chevy were not wearing their seat belts. Largo police did not identify the driver of the vehicle.
Police said alcohol was a factor in this crash. Charges are pending the outcome of the investigation.
