    TAMPA -- A Riverview man was killed in a fiery crash early Friday on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway.

    Michael Hostetter, 29, of 10203 Merrimac Manor Drive, was driving his 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser east at a high speed near the 39th Street exit shortly after 4 a.m. when he lost control, police said.

    The Cruiser crossed into the center median and rolled several times, ejecting Hostetter. The vehicle continued to roll, then caught on fire before coming to rest in the westbound lanes.

    Hostetter was pronounced dead at the scene.
