SOUTH BAY, Fla. - A man died after crashing a truck into a canal in South Bay early Sunday night.
The vehicle was found on the Miami Canal embankment by a passerby at about 7:36 p.m, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.
Evidence indicated the truck, a 2007 Chevrolet C1500, was northbound on Corkscrew Boulevard when, for an unknown reason, the driver lost control.
The vehicle veered to the left and struck a metal guardrail with its left side. The truck traveled over the guardrail and came to rest partially submerged in the Miami Canal.
The driver, identified as Oscar Manual Gonzalez Jr., 19, of Clewiston, Fla., was ejected and came to rest on the canal embankment. He was found dead at the scene.
