DELTONA -- A 53-year-old Deltona motorist was killed after losing control of his 1994 Ford pick-up truck and striking a pole in nearby Seminole County just after midnight of New Year's Day, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The driver was eastbound on Celery Avenue, near C.R. 415, when he failed to negotiate a curve and drove off the road and into a utility pole. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers said it was too soon to say if alcohol was a factor.
The victim's name was being withheld until family members are contacted.
