    On November 24, 2011, at 11:00 a.m., deputies were dispatched to a traffic crash at S.R. 579 and Old East Hillsborough Ave. in Seffner. When deputies arrived, they found two pick up trucks involved with one truck overturned. The male driver of the overturned truck was trapped inside the vehicle and was pronounced deceased by EMS. The driver in the other truck was not injured.

    According to detectives, the 1990 black Ford F150 pickup truck driven by Daniel Walls was attempting to cross Hwy 579, eastbound, and entered the path of a southbound red 2006 Ford F150 driven by Simona Naugle. Simona Naugle swerved left to try and avoid the impact but was unable to do so. Naugle's truck struck Wall's truck in the driver's side causing Wall's truck to overturn.

    Paramedics arrived and declared Daniel Walls deceased at the scene. Naugle suffered bumps and bruises and was not transported to the hospital. The investigation into the causes of the crash is continuing. Both drivers were wearing their seatbelts. Alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

    No charges pending further investigation.
