PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -

A 40-year-old Melrose man was killed in a single-vehicle crash in Putnam County early Thursday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

State troopers said Jason Shelton was driving southbound on State Road 21, a half-mile north of Perry Road, just after midnight.

Troopers said Shelton's pickup truck veered to the left and began to rotate counter-clockwise. The truck traveled across the northbound lane and went onto the grassy shoulder, then struck a wooden utility pole.

Shelton died at the scene.

Troopers said blood alcohol content results are pending.
