Riverview man hurt after losing control of pickup

A 34-year-old Riverview man was in critical condition Sunday after losing control of his truck and crashing into a tree, the Hillsborough Sheriff's Office said.

Oliver Valencia, of 8822 W Millpoint Road, was taken to Tampa General Hospital after the 2:20 a.m. accident, said sheriff's spokeswoman Debbie Carter.

Valencia was driving east on Riverview Drive in a 1985 Chevrolet pickup when he came to a left curve near Van Fleet Road and lost control of the wheel, Carter said.

He "failed to follow the curve," causing the truck to go airborne over a ditch, Carter said. Valencia's truck came to rest against a palm tree.
