A Lecanto man driving a 2004 Toyota pickup was killed Friday night in a single-vehicle crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP).

The man’s name is being withheld pending notification of his next of kin, according to the preliminary report.

The man was reportedly traveling northbound on County Road 491 when the truck inexplicably left the road and veered west into a culvert, causing it to overturn. He was pronounced dead on the scene. He was not wearing his seatbelt.

The crash is still being investigated.
