A fatal crash left a gaping hole in a church on Cherry Lake Road in Sumter County.
A 21-year-old Leesburg man had been at the wheel of a pickup at 8:15 p.m. Monday traveling northbound on Cherry Lake Road (also known as County Road 100) south of County Road 466 when the truck left the roadway and overturned multiple times, according to an accident report from the Florida Highway Patrol.
The pickup then crashed into the Elder Mary Newsom Hudson Church located at 10456 County Road 100B in Lady Lake. The driver died at the scene of the crash.
The name of the driver was not released due to a new FHP policy.
