Wimauma man dies in single-car crash

A Wimauma man died Sunday night after he lost control of his car while speeding and struck a tree.

Hillsborough County deputies say Jose Cruz, 67, was driving a 2010 Chevrolet Cobalt westbound on North Street in Wimauma around 7 p.m. when he lost control while turning left onto 11th Street and struck a tree on the passenger side.

Cruz, who deputies say was driving his mother’s car without her permission, died Sunday night at South Bay Hospital.

Investigators are determining whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
