FHP reports that 20 year-old Gabriel A. Matthews was driving a 2002 Chevy Cavalier when his left rear tire failed as he passed 4th Street.  This resulted in him losing control of the Chevy, departing the roadway into the shoulder, and colliding with a overhead sign pole.

Matthews was transported to St. Joseph’s Hospital where he died from his injuries.
