A 20-year-old man was killed Saturday when his tire blew, causing him to crash on I-275. 

The crash occurred around 6:40 p.m. Saturday on I-275, just north of 4th Street N. 

Troopers said Gabriel Matthews, of Palm Harbor, was traveling northbound on I-275 when his tire failed, causing him to lose control of his Chevy Cavalier. 

The vehicle ran off the road and collided with an overhead sign pole. 

Matthews was transported to St. Joseph's Hospital where he died from his injuries.
