Man Killed In Crash On South Indian River Drive
ST. LUCIE COUNTY — A Port St. Lucie man has died in a crash on South Indian River Drive, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Highway officials reported the vehicle he was traveling in left the road at a curve in the 38000 block of South Indian River Drive north of Midway Road.
The driver was driving a 2006 four-door beige Honda north when he went off the road, over-corrected and hit a tree and wood barrier on the west shoulder, highway officials stated in a crash report.
A passenger was ejected from the vehicle and pronounced dead by Fire Rescue, according to the report. He was not wearing a seat belt. The driver was transported to the hospital with serious injuries.
Florida Highway Patrol spokesman Lt. Yanko Reyes stated the man’s identity could not be revealed “due to the new amendment to the Florida Constitution (in) reference (to) Marsy’s Law.”
All lanes were blocked for several hours after the crash but were reopened by 7:30 a.m., according to the FHP.
