Published:   |   Updated: March 12, 2013 at 01:44 PM

A Palm Harbor man was killed early Friday morning after deputies say he lost control of his pickup truck on and it overturned in Dunedin.

Pinellas County deputies say Matthew W. Vonderau, 31, was driving a Ford F-150 northbound on County Road 1 at Hickory Gate Drive when he lost control for unknown reasons.

Deputies say Vonderau was thrown from the truck after swerving off the road, striking several trees and overturning.

Vonderau was pronounced dead on scene, deputies say, and no other injuries were reported.

Alcohol appears to be a factor in the crash, deputies say.

An investigation is ongoing.
