Vero Beach man killed in St. Lucie County crash

A 28-year-old man was killed Wednesday afternoon on Johnston Road, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The crash happened around 2:17 p.m.

Timothy Donnelly, of Vero Beach, was heading south on Johnston Road in a 2000 Mercury Grand Marquis while a semi-truck was heading north on the same road, according to FHP. However, Donnelly's car crossed the center line and into the northbound lane, into the path of the semi-truck.

The driver of the semi-truck tried to brake and steer away from Donnelly's car, but the two vehicles crashed into each other head-on.

Donnelly died at the scene, according to FHP. The driver of the semi-truck wasn't injured.

The case is still pending investigation.
