Florida Highway Patrol said Timothy Trueblood, 49, was traveling eastbound on Spooner Road near Interstate 10 in Quincy when he went off the road, traveling more than 200 feet until he hit a tree.
FHP is still investigating the cause of the accident. Officers said Trueblood was pronounced dead at the scene. Neighbors were shocked to find out the accident took place right outside their homes.
“We thought it was on the interstate or something, but it was right here this morning. When we came out and it was too many cops out here and stuff," said Tammy Fancher, a neighbor.
Authorities said Trueblood was wearing a seat belt and speed was not a factor in the accident.
