Plant City man dies after Thursday night car crash

TAMPA — A Plant City man died Friday morning following a Thursday night car accident at U.S. 92 and Bethlehem Road.

At 11:46 p.m., Guillermo Ortega, 62, stopped his 1995 Mercury at the stop sign on Bethlehem at U.S. 92, then continued into the path of 19-year-old Mariah Danielle Davis's 1997 Nissan, according to Florida Highway Patrol preliminary reports.

The Mercury was hit on the driver's side and Ortega was not wearing a seat belt, the report said. He was taken to Lakeland Regional Hospital in critical condition, and later died there. Davis received minor injuries and was also taken to the hospital. Troopers are investigating whether alcohol was involved.
