      A 22-year-old man was killed in an early morning car crash in the town of Pompey.

      Deputies say it happened on Route 91, just south of Busch Road, around 3:30 a.m. Friday.

      Tyler Masters, 22, was driving a 1998 GMC Jimmy southbound on Route 91 when he drifted to the left side of the roadway and struck a tree.
