A 22-year-old Lake City man was killed Monday night when his car struck a tree in Columbia County.
Blake C. Milliken was driving north on Southwest Haltiwanger Road at 9:46 p.m. when he drove off the road on a curve to the left, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Milliken’s 2007 Chevrolet pickup went into the woods and struck a large oak tree before spinning around counter clockwise.
Milliken, who was not wearing a seatbelt, was pronounced deceased while enroute to the hospital, the FHP reported.
