Newberry man dies after truck strikes tree

A Newberry man died Wednesday night after his truck struck a tree on State Road 45.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 30-year-old Emanuel Hernandez was driving a 2003 Chevrolet Silverado north about 9:30 p.m.

Troopers say the truck initially ran off the right shoulder, then back onto the road where it began to spin clockwise until the driver's side of the truck hit a tree on the side of the road.

Troopers say Hernandez was pronounced dead at the scene.
