Early Sunday one man was killed and another injured in a crash on Florida’s Turnpike in St. Lucie County.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, a sedan driven by a 21-year-old Tallahassee man was traveling northbound on Florida’s Turnpike at 3:57 a.m. near mile marker 161.

It is unclear if the sedan was driving slow or stopped in the left lane.

The first sedan ran off the road and overturned, coming to rest on it’s roof.

The second sedan rotated and came to a rest on the east shoulder facing west.

A pickup truck driven by a 64-year-old Lantana man struck the left rear of the second sedan.

The 54-year-old driver of the second sedan died at the scene as a result of his injuries.

He was not wearing a seat belt.
