WAKULLA COUNTY, Fla. (WTXL) -- A Crawfordville man is dead and a woman critically injured after a crash in Wakulla County.

William Andrew Vincent Clark, 24, was killed in the accident.

It happened just after midnight on County Road 61 near Powell Lane.

Florida Highway Patrol says Clark was driving a Chevy Silverado and overcorrected -- then hit a church sign, overturned, and struck a utility pole that cut the truck in half.

Both Clark and his passenger -- Gabriel Denise Brown, 29, of Crawfordville -- were ejected.

Troopers say neither were wearing seat belts, and alcohol is a factor.
