A single-vehicle crash near State Road 200 early Saturday morning claimed the life of Todd Hopkins, 50 of Fernandina Beach.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Hopkins' Chevrolet Silverado drifted off of Barnwell Road onto the grass shoulder just after 2:30 a.m. Hopkins then tried to correct his vehicle back into the correct lane, causing the pickup truck to roll several times before coming to a rest.

Police say that alcohol was not a factor in the crash, and Hopkins was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the accident.

The investigation is still on going.
