PUTNAM COUNTY, Fla. -- A St. Augustine man died early Sunday morning after a crash caused his truck to catch fire.
Scott Alan Stinson, 32, died around 5:25 a.m on SR 207 just west of Stone road near Palatka.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Stinson was driving a Dodge Ram 1500 south on SR 207 in the early hours of Sunday.
A log truck ahead of Stinson had just made right hand turn onto SR 207 from Stone Road and Stinson rear-ended the truck. Stinson was reportedly traveling at a high rate of speed, according to FHP.
The impact of the crash sent the Stinson's truck spinning into the median and it caught on fire.
According to FHP, Stinson was wearing his seat belt at the time of the crash. Alcohol results and charges are pending.
