A Live Oak man was killed Saturday in a single-vehicle crash in Brooksville.
The crash happened at 5:17 p.m. on Hayman Road, just west of Batten Road.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Ricky Cates Gardner, 56, was driving a 1998 Toyota Corolla east on Hayman Road when he drove off the road and onto the south grass shoulder.
The Corolla hit a concrete culvert and some shrubs before coming to final rest between a utility pole and a guide wire, troopers say.
Gardner died from his injuries at the scene of the crash.
