TPD Investigating Fatal Vehicle Crash
February 10, 2014
The Tallahassee Police Department along with Leon County Sheriff's Office Deputies, EMS and TFD were called to the 1900 Block of Portland Avenue at approximately 3:20 a.m. last night for a traffic crash. Once on scene, officers discovered a single car crash which resulted in the death of the vehicle's only occupant.
TPD's Traffic Homicide Investigators were called to the scene and assumed the investigation. It appears the car was traveling west on Portland Avenue when it left the roadway, struck a curb, and continued through several yards before striking the base of a large tree. The driver succumbed to his injuries on scene. There were no other persons in the vehicle or injured as a result of the crash. The investigation into the cause of the crash is on-going and TPD is not releasing the name of the driver pending notification of next of kin.
