Apollo Beach man dies after losing control of car in Clair-Mel crash

TAMPA — An Apollo Beach man died Saturday night after he lost control of his sport utility vehicle while speeding around a curve on Causeway Boulevard, authorities said.

Ryan Naab, 35, was heading east on Causeway Boulevard near 45th Street around 5:15 p.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol. He lost control of his 2004 Ford Explorer while navigating a "moderate" curve in the road. The SUV went onto the grassy shoulder, overturned and hit a 90-foot steel power pole, the patrol said.

The SUV came to a stop in a water retention ditch, troopers said. Naab, who was not wearing a seat belt, was thrown from the SUV and died at the scene.

An investigation is ongoing.
