A Port St. Joe man was killed in a single-vehicle accident Tuesday morning in Franklin County.

Christopher Lamar Anderson, 40, was killed on U.S. 98 in Carrabelle when the vehicle he was driving left the shoulder of the road and hit a tree, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

According to the FHP, Anderson was traveling east on U.S. 98 when his vehicle, a 2006 Saturn Vue, traveled onto the south shoulder, losing control.

The vehicle reentered the road and traveled across both lanes and onto the north shoulder where it struck a large tree on the right side.

Anderson was pronounced dead at the scene.

Anderson was not wearing a seat belt, according to the FHP. Toxicology results are listed as pending.
