FHP investigating fatal crash in Lutz

LUTZ — A 28-year-old Brooksville man was killed early Thursday when his vehicle bounced between concrete barriers and a metal guardrail on the Suncoast Parkway.

Roberto Marrero Jr. was taken to St. Joseph's Hospital in Tampa, where he died from his injuries.

The crash happened in the northbound lanes of the Suncoast Parkway, south of State Road 54 in Pasco County, about 3:30 a.m.

Marrero was driving north in a 2007 Toyota Scion when he veered onto the outside paved shoulder and struck a concrete barrier. His vehicle was deflected across the road into the opposite concrete barrier before once again crossing the road and striking a metal guardrail, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

No one else was involved in the crash.

Marrero was not wearing a seat belt.

The investigation is ongoing.
