A 38-year-old Fort Lauderdale man was killed early Tuesday when his sport utility vehicle overturned on County Road 557, just north of Lake Alfred, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Anthony J. McMullen was driving his 2001 Nissan SUV south on CR 557 when the vehicle veered onto the road's west shoulder, the FHP said. The SUV spun counterclockwise, overturned and threw McMullen from the SUV about 3:30 a.m., the FHP said.

The SUV then collided with a utility pole, the FHP said.

McMullen was not wearing a seat belt, the FHP said.
