MARTIN COUNTY, Fla. -- A man died in a crash early Sunday morning in Martin County.

Florida Highway Patrol says 34-year-old Santos Neftali Vasquez was driving a 1992 Nissan Pathfinder southbound on SE Old Dixie Highway at 6:50 a.m. when his vehicle veered to the left and crossed a paved median into the northbound lane.

The Pathfinder continued in a southeast direction, leaving the roadway and crossing the sidewalk.

The vehicle entered a ditch, striking the embankment and overturning.

Vasquez was ejected into the water during the crash. The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
