An Ocala man died Sunday after an early morning single-car crash in Marion County.

Emerson Williams III, 52, was pronounced dead at Ocala Regional Medical Center a short time after the 3:15 a.m. crash. Williams had been driving a 2003 Ford Taurus on County Road 225A, just north of NW 54th Loop, when for unknown reasons his vehicle left the roadway and hit a tree, a Florida Highway Patrol report states, adding that it hasn’t been determined if alcohol was a factor in the crash.
