Levy County, FL (March 28, 2019) - A rear-end crash on US-41 left a man dead. The accident occurred on Wednesday, March 27th.
51-year-old Thomas Wesley Munden was driving a 2013 Ford Focus in the northbound lanes of the highway. Munden slowed his vehicle to make a right turn onto Southeast Second Street when he was struck from behind by a delivery truck, driven by 30-year-old Luis Rivera Gonzalez. Rescue workers arrived at the scene and transported Munden to UF Health Shands Hospital, where he later died.
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrols say that charges are pending against Gonzalez at this time.
