Woman in pickup dies on interstate

A 19-year-old woman was killed in a single-car accident on Interstate 75 Tuesday morning.

Devin Arielle Turnquist, whose hometown was Clearwater, Fla., was driving south on I-75 in a Ford Explorer pickup when she drove off the interstate and into a tree, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

After hitting the tree, her pickup flipped over and slid down a ditch on the west side of the interstate.

FHP responded to a call around 8 a.m., reporting a damaged fence near mile marker 379 in the southbound lane of I-75.

When troopers arrived to the scene, they found the pickup in some brush in the ditch.

Turnquist was pronounced dead on the scene, the report said.

Julie Garrett, a spokeswoman for Santa Fe College, said Turnquist was listed in the Santa Fe directory but was not currently taking classes.

FHP's Traffic Homicide Investigators are looking into the case.
