A woman was killed late Thursday afternoon in a single-vehicle crash just south of Inverness.

The crash happened at 5:05 p.m. on Pleasant Grove Road, just north of the intersection with Hillsdale Lane.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, the driver of a 1989 Honda Civic was heading south on Pleasant Grove Road when she veered off the road for unknown reasons.

The driver lost control of her car, traveling across both lanes and onto the east grass shoulder, where the car crashed into a tree.

A 29-year-old passenger was pronounced dead as a result of the crash.  Her identity has not yet been released pending the notification of next of kin.

The driver and another passenger both sustained serious injuries. They were taken to Ocala Regional Medical Center.
