According to a Largo Police Department report the incident occurred just south of Ulmerton Rd. Investigators say a 2008 Chevrolet was traveling south on Starkey when it veered out of control. The vehicle slid sideways into a nearby culvert.

The car went airborne at that point and rolled at least once causing Ollek to be partially ejected. He was a passenger in the vehicle the report states.

The driver, who has not been identified, may have been under the influence of alcohol. Neither occupant was wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Charges against the driver are pending as the investigation continues.
