SUMTER COUNTY, Fla. - Troopers are investigating a crash that left two people dead in Sumter County early Sunday.
The Florida Highway Patrol said it happened shortly before 3:30 a.m. on County Road 209 near County Road 202 in Oxford.
According to FHP, a 21-year-old Summerfield man was driving a SUV northbound on CR-209, when the vehicle entered a west shoulder.
Authorities said the driver over-corrected the SUV back upon the road where it collided with a mailbox and overturned, throwing both the driver and its 32-year-old female passenger from the SUV, killing them.
FHP said they were not wearing a seat belt.
CR-209 was closed as FHP worked the scene, but it has since reopened.
