On June 4 at about 7:25 p.m. a 2005 Chevrolet Corvette driven by Martin Frederick Mastriano, 27, of St. Petersburg was traveling eastbound on the Pinellas Bayway at a very high rate of speed. Kyle Scott Matyac, 27, of St. Pete Beach was the passenger.
In the 6000 block of the Pinellas Bayway, Mastriano lost control of the car and left the south side of the road. The vehicle went through a drainage ditch then became airborne, traveling more than 50 yards in the air before impacting the ground and tumbling to rest.
Mastriano was unrestrained and was ejected from the vehicle. Matyac was restrained and was crushed as the vehicle rolled over. Mastriano was transported to Bayfront Health St Petersburg in serious condition. Matyac was pronounced deceased at the scene of the crash.
St. Petersburg police are still investigating. Next of kin have been notified
