The Florida Highway reports that Dalton Faron Wilson, 23, of Fort Pierce, was killed Saturday evening in an automobile crash in St. Lucie County.
The accident occurred on Angle Road near Kings Highway in Fort Pierce.
Wilson was a passenger in a Toyota Scion driven by Cynthia Stephens, 24, also of Fort Pierce. She was seriously injured along with a second passenger, Carol Stephens, 21.
The FHP states Stephens’ car was traveling westbound on Angle Road approaching a left hand curve. A Ford F350 pickup truck driven by Benjamin Gotti, 53, of Jacksonville, was proceeding eastbound on Angle Road. For an unknown reason, Stephens’ car went off the roadway and then back on, clipping Gotti’s truck in the process. Stephens’ car was pushed into a guardrail and the accident ensued.
Toxicology reports are pending. The cause of the accident remains under investigation.
