UPDATE 6:30 P.M.

Florida Highway Patrol said a 42-year-old man from Tallahassee is dead following a crash that happened Thursday morning. In their report, FHP released the following details:

On March 7, 2024 at 11:09 AM, Troopers responded to traffic fatality on US Highway 27 (North Monroe Street) near Clara Kee Blvd. At approximately 11:03 AM, a Black Chevrolet Silverado was traveling southbound on North Monroe Street in the area of Clara Kee Blvd.

Due to reasons that are currently unknown, the Driver of the vehicle crossed over the median strip on N Monroe Street and began traveling southbound while crossing over all northbound lanes of travel. The Silverado then ran off of the roadway to the left near the property of 4311 N Monroe Street (Secondhand Sandies).

The Silverado then collided with a 6’ privacy fence which was surrounding the property of 3988 Bentwood Lane (facing N Monroe Street). Once the Silverado entered into the yard of 3988 Bentwood Lane, the Silverado’s front collided into the outer wall of the residence, causing the front of the vehicle to become embedded into the outer wall.

As emergency personnel arrived on scene, the Driver was pronounced Deceased on scene. The front seat passenger was transported by Leon County EMS to the Tallahassee Memorial Hospital.

Neither occupants were believed to have been wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash. This is still an on-going investigation.
