A woman was killed Sunday evening after being ejected from a car during a crash in Collier County.

It happened along Westclox Street in Immokalee just after 6 p.m., according to Florida Highway Patrol.

A man, 24, was driving the car and the woman, also 24, was riding in the passenger seat. The driver was approaching a curve while traveling east on Westclox and took the turn incorrectly, troopers said. The car traveled off the road, hit vegetation, and overturned, landing on its roof.

The woman was ejected from the vehicle. FHP says she was not wearing a seatbelt. She was taken to the hospital and later pronounced dead.

The Florida Highway Patrol no longer releases the names of those involved in crashes, citing Marsy’s Law.
