OCALA, FL – An Ocala man died after his vehicle went off the road and crashed in Marion County early Tuesday morning, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
A report by the Ocala StarBanner stated the victim was a 32-year-old man driving a Volkswagen Jetta north on County Road 315 near Northeast 135th Street sometime before 4:15 a.m. As the vehicle approached a right-hand curve the driver veered left, going off the roadway and onto a shoulder.
