WEBSTER — A 37-year-old Ridge Manor woman was killed early Wednesday when her car left State Road 50 and crashed into a tree, authorities said.
The woman was traveling eastbound on her way back from St. Petersburg in a 1996 Subaru when she failed to negotiate a curve west of County Road 478A, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The Subaru traveled into the westbound lane and onto the north shoulder before colliding with a tree. A passerby discovered the crash scene at 6:30 a.m., authorities said.
Authorities are withholding the identity of the woman, who was not wearing a seatbelt, pending notification of her next of kin.
The accident remains under investigation.
