A vehicle accident in Hillsborough County claimed the life of a Lake Wales man last week.
According to Florida Highway Patrol reports, at 3:58 a.m. Feb. 27 a Dodge 2012 Avenger, driven by Shawn Michael Montgomery, 24, traveled off the roadway and onto the center grass median.
The vehicle then over-corrected back across the westbound lane, then redirected back across the median and eastbound lane.
Reports say that then, continuing in a southwest direction, the vehicle traveled on the south grass shoulder and collided with a tree.
Montgomery suffered fatal injuries and passed away at the scene of the crash.
