Williston man dies after being ejected from vehicle in violent Ocala crash

A 37-year-old Williston man was killed early Sunday morning when he was ejected from his vehicle during a single-car crash in Ocala.

Martin John Graves Jr. was pronounced dead at the scene by a Marion County Fire Rescue lieutenant. He had been driving a 2008 Infinity G35 on County Road 464B at about 4:30 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle and hit a cable box and wood-post fence near the 5400 block of NW 110th Avenue, a Florida Highway Patrol report states.

Graves’ vehicle then spun into a field located on the same property and overturned at least two times. He was thrown from the car during the crash, the FHP report says.
