A 35-year-old Interlachen woman died early Saturday morning when a pickup she was riding in left State Road 100 and collided with a tree in Starke.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) report, a 37-year-old Keystone Heights man was driving east on SR 100 near L.M. Gaines Boulevard at 2:45 a.m. when his pickup ran off the road to the right. He then went back across the lanes of travel and the right side of the vehicle collided with a tree.

Emergency responders pronounced the female passenger dead on scene and the driver was transported to an area hospital. Neither the driver nor the passenger was wearing a seatbelt.
