A 26-year-old man is dead after a head-on collision on State Road 40 approaching Palmetto Pines Drive in Volusia County early Sunday, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

The 26-year-old from Sanford was driving westbound on State Road 40 around 3:40 a.m. when he failed to control his 2009 Chrysler Town and Country around a curve and collided head-on with 2012 Ford F-150 travelling eastbound, FHP said.

The 26-year-old overturned and collided with a traffic sign and was pronounced dead at the scene, FHP said.

The Ford pickup truck’s driver, a 32-year-old man, and his passenger, a 45-year-old man sustained serious injuries and were transported to Halifax Hospital, FHP said.

The crash remains under investigation.
