Plant City man dies in crash with semi

TAMPA — A 25-year-old man died early Monday in a crash in Plant City.

Kevin Walton II was driving north on Paul Buchman Highway shortly before 2 a.m. in a 2004 Honda Civic. As he approached Varn Road, the car drifted into the southbound lane and into the path of a tow truck, said Sgt. Steve Gaskins, a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman.

Walton's car struck the left side of William Adams' semitrailer truck. The impact pushed Walton's car back to the northbound lane and it stopped on the east shoulder of the road. He was killed in the crash.

Adams, 53, was not injured. Both drivers wore seat belts and alcohol was not a factor in the crash, Gaskins said.
