A 24-year-old man was killed in a single-vehicle crash overnight in Hillsborough County.
Officials said the man was traveling eastbound on West Waters Avenue, approaching Pinehurst Drive, and lost control of his Toyota Corolla.
After losing control, the vehicle rotated and struck the center median curb with the front passenger wheel and entered the center median.
The rear passenger door struck a standing pine tree, causing the tree to be uprooted and the vehicle to roll onto the roof.
Troopers said the man was not wearing a seatbelt and was ejected from the vehicle. He died at the scene.
The crash occurred just before 3 a.m.
