LUTZ (FOX 13) - A man was killed early Thursday morning when his vehicle crashed into a home on Lutz Lake Fern Road, near Heritage Harbor Parkway and Sierra Pines Blvd.
Officials say Maxwell Holloway was driving westbound in a Dodge Charger when he failed to negotiate a curve in the roadway, causing his vehicle to leave the road. The car struck a utility pole, and continued moving, striking several trees before colliding into the exterior of a home on Sandy Shores Dr. The car finally came to a stop in the backyard, lying on its roof.
Holloway died as a result of the accident.
The homeowners were not injured, and the home was not seriously damaged.
Lutz Lake Fern Road is closed as a result of the incident as authorities remove the mangled vehicle from the scene.
CORRECTION: A previous version of this story reported the deceased's name as Matthew Holloway.
