Pickup driver dies in east Hillsborough crash

PALM RIVER — A Wisconsin woman who was in town for the equestrian show at the Florida State Fairgrounds died early Saturday when she crashed her pickup truck into a tree near Falkenburg and Palm River roads.

Allison G. Kasten, 20, of Mequon, Wis., was driving a white Ford F-150 about 5:30 a.m. when she failed to negotiate a curve, strayed into a median and hit the oak, according to Hillsborough sheriff's officials.

No one else was in the vehicle.

An investigation of the crash is ongoing.
