One person was killed and three others were seriously injured in a crash on Pine Ridge Road late Monday night.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a car driven by a 40-year-old man with a 26-year-old woman as his passenger, both from Naples, was traveling at high speed east on Pine Ridge Road, east of Logan Boulevard at around 10:30 p.m. A pickup truck driven by a 47-year-old man with a 41-year-old woman as his passenger, both from Naples, was also traveling east on Pine Ridge Road, ahead of the car.

The first driver lost control of the car and veered onto the grass median, reentered the eastbound travel lanes and rear-ended the pickup truck. The car rotated, traveled off the roadway, collided with a fence and stopped. After the collision, the pickup truck crossed the median, overturned and stopped on the westbound lanes of Pine Ridge Road.

The driver of the car was pronounced dead at the scene. His passenger and both people in the pickup truck were transported to area hospitals with serious injuries. The crash remains under investigation.
