BAY COUNTY, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - An Alabama man is dead after a crash on Highway 231 that happened early Tuesday morning.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, a 2003 black Chevrolet Tahoe driven by a 26-year-old man was heading north on the outside lane of Highway 231 just south of Linger Longer Road.

They say the vehicle went off the road and onto the northbound shoulder and then over-corrected.

The vehicle then crossed over both northbound lanes and went onto the median.

FHP says it then overturned, partially ejecting the driver.

The man was pronounced dead at the scene, and his identity has not been released pending notification of his next of kin.
