Seffner man dies week after car crash

TAMPA — A Seffner man died Saturday from injuries he suffered last month in a Wesley Chapel crash.

Steven B. Williams, 41, had been taken to Tampa General Hospital after his car and another vehicle collided June 30 on Interstate 75 south of State Road 56, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The patrol said Williams was driving north on the outside lane when his car was struck from behind by a sport utility vehicle driven by Juan Carlos Renteria-Hernandez, 22, of Dade City.

The impact caused Williams' car to spin onto the shoulder. The SUV ended up in the median.

Authorities said Renteria-Hernandez and a passenger were wearing seat belts and not injured. Williams was not wearing a seat belt, the patrol said.

The crash remained under investigation.
