Man, 34, killed in Martin County crash


A 34-year-old man was killed Sunday morning in a crash at 3815 S.E. Old Dixie Highway, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Santos Neftali Vasquez, of Indiantown, was driving south on Dixie when his 1992 Nissan Pathfinder veered to the left and crossed a paved median into the northbound lane, according to the FHP. The Nissan kept going, left the roadway, went into a ditch and hit the embankment.

The Nissan then then overturned, ejecting Vasquez into the water, the FHP said. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
