A DeBary resident was killed over the weekend in a single-vehicle crash on South Charles R. Beall Boulevard.

Around 7:20 a.m. Saturday, Johnson Kennedy III, 61, was driving south on CRB near Valencia Road when his Hyundai crossed the roadway for unknown reasons, struck a curb in the northbound lane and continued along the sidewalk.

The vehicle traveled southbound along the sidewalk, then hit a light post before coming to a stop against a large flower pot, just north of DeBary Drive.

Sheriff’s deputies and Volusia County EMS performed lifesaving measures until Kennedy was transported to a hospital, where he was pronounced deceased about 8:15 a.m.

A crash investigation is ongoing and an autopsy is pending.
