BROOKSVILLE — A 29-year-old Port Richey man died after he crashed into two traffic signs and a tree along U.S. 19 and was ejected from his car, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The driver was not wearing a seatbelt when he crashed about 1:05 a.m. Wednesday north of U.S. 50.
He was headed south on U.S. 19 when he entered the median for unknown reasons, traveled back across the roadway, entered the shoulder and struck the signs and tree.
He was taken to a hospital, where he later died.
The Highway Patrol did not release the name of the driver because of its interpretation of Marsy’s Law, a voter-approved amendment to the state Constitution that was meant to protect crime victims but that deprives the public of information long available under Florida’s public records law.
