A Port St. Lucie man died in a crash on Interstate 95 in Martin County Tuesday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

21-year-old Arthur Charles Schuck III was heading north when FHP says he lost control, overturned and crossed the median.

Traffic investigators say he collided with three other southbound vehicles.

Schuck III died at the scene, FHP says.

Three passengers in his pickup were hospitalized and two were last listed in critical condition.

One southbound driver was also hurt in the collision and hospitalized in serious condition.

The accident happened near mile marker 96 just after 4:30 p.m. and forced the closure of the interstate while troopers investigated.

FHP says the cause of the crash remains under investigation.
