20-year-old Ocala man dies in early morning crash on I-75


A 20-year-old Ocala man died early Wednesday morning after his car ran off I-75 and struck a palm tree.

The crash happened about 3 a.m. just north of Exit 374 to Micanopy. Florida Highway Patrol troopers say Tyler Eddy was taken to UF Health where he died from his injuries.

Troopers say Eddy was heading north on I-75 in a 1993 Honda Civic when it veered onto the shoulder and struck a tree. A report says Eddy was wearing a seatbelt.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.
