CRESTVIEW — A 35-year-old man from Ponce de Leon was killed in a wreck on State Road 85 north of Duke Field early Saturday morning.

Tawayne McCaskill was driving north in a Pontiac Grand Prix about 4:35 a.m. when he tried to pass another driver in the right lane, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

McCaskill lost control and hit the side of the car he was trying to pass before veering off the road into the grass. His car rolled over several times.

He was partially ejected from the car and died at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt, the FHP reported.

The driver of the other car suffered minor injuries, but was not hospitalized.

Charges are pending further investigation, according to the FHP.
