A single-vehicle crash in Clearwater resulted in the death of one person. The fatal incident was reported to the authorities on the night of Friday, November 20.
According to the details shared by the authorities, the accident happened on Roosevelt Boulevard. A driver, who has not been identified by the Florida Highway Patrol as of yet, was headed westbound on the Boulevard.
As he drew close to Ulmerton Road, he attempted to negotiate a curve. It is likely that he made this attempt at a high speed. As he was negotiating the curve, the driver lost control of the vehicle. The car then moved away from the roadway and began to spin.
Preliminary investigations by the FHP shows that the driver attempted to regain control of the car and briefly succeeded in doing so. However, the car again left the roadway. This time, the car lost its balance as it moved away from the road. It overturned in the center median but the momentum of the vehicle propelled it into the eastbound lanes where it finally came to rest.
The single-vehicle crash in Clearwater occurred in the evening and was reported at around 6:45 p.m. The driver was the only occupant of the vehicle at the time. No other vehicles were hit or impacted by the car. As the car overturned, the driver was ejected from it. Troopers report that the driver was not wearing a seatbelt at the time.
The unidentified driver was confirmed only as a man aged 33 from Dunedin. The victim of the incident sustained critical injuries. Once the first responders and paramedics reached the scene, the injured man was rushed to a local hospital. However, attempts to revive and save him failed. He succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead at the hospital.
