PENSACOLA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a Florida man trying to escape a traffic stop died after crashing his car.

The Pensacola News Journal reports that 20-year-old Michael Crumpton was pronounced dead early Tuesday morning at a Pensacola hospital.

A Florida Highway Patrol report says an Escambia County deputy tried to pull Crumpton over shortly after midnight but Crumpton attempted to flee. Officials say Crumpton ran a traffic light and crashed into a pickup truck. Crumpton’s car let the road and went airborne, ejecting him. The pickup overturned and hit another truck.

Crumpton was transported to a nearby hospital with fatal injuries.

No injuries were reported to the other drivers.
