The Florida Highway Patrol and the report that 19 year old Fort Pierce resident Carlos Alberto Hernandez was killed early Saturday morning in a car crash.

The accident occurred before the 125.5 mile marker in the northbound direction of I-95 in St. Lucie County.

The FHP states Hernandez was traveling northbound on I-95 in a Kia Optima when for unknown reasons he veered off the road, onto the grass shoulder, and then into the median. He subsequently crashed into a pine tree. He was not wearing a seatbelt. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash remains under investigation.

Everyone at Philip DeBerard Injury Attorney sends their condolences to the family and friends of Hernandez.
