A St. Paul, Minnesota, man died Monday after his truck collided with a semi-truck in DeSoto County, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The 53-year-old man was driving a pickup westbound on State Road 70, east of Northeast Wildwood Avenue, when the wreck happened around 1:48 p.m.
He was reportedly unable to maintain a single lane and drove onto the grass shoulder, losing control of the vehicle, according to the FHP. The truck rotated into the eastbound lane and collided with a semi driven by a 28-year-old Bradenton man.
The pickup’s driver was declared dead at the scene. The other driver was not injured.
The FHP is investigating the crash.
