    11612 Colony Hill Dr.
    Seffner, FL


    On June 23, 2016 at 1:18 a.m., Philip D. Chronis was driving his Ford F350 southbound on Williams Road at a high rate of speed, unrestrained, when he failed to negotiate a left hand curve in the roadway. He continued off of the west shoulder, rotated counterclockwise, and struck a tree. The truck then overturned and struck a brick wall at the WigWam Mobile Home Park. The truck
    destroyed the wall and continued to overturn breaking a TECO pole just inside the brick wall. Chronis died at the scene and next of kin was notified. TECO responded to make the scene safe due to downed wires and to replace the broken TECO pole. The investigation continues into the cause of the crash.
