A 60-year-old Chiefland man was killed July 9 in a single car crash.

According to a report issued by the Florida Highway Patrol, Bruce Wayne Roque was driving a 1997 GMC 1500 pickup northeast on County Road 347.

The vehicle drifted off the paved portion of the roadway with the right side. The man attempted to correct himself by turning to the left. As the vehicle reentered the roadway, the driver oversteered to the right, causing the vehicle to rotate in a clockwise direction before leaving the roadway, overturning and coming to rest on its roof. 

The man was not wearing his seatbelt and was ejected.

He was pronounced dead on-scene by Levy County Fire Rescue.
