Forty Eight Yr Old Lakeland Man Killed When Truck Crashes Into Utility Pole

The Polk County Sheriff’s Office Traffic Homicide Unit is investigating a fatal crash that occurred, Tuesday, June 28, 2022 in unincorporated Lakeland.

 

At around 3:30 a.m., PCSO deputies and members of Polk County Fire Rescue responded to the scene of the single-vehicle crash on Main Street East just west of Eleanor Drive.

 

According to the preliminary investigation, 48-year-old Pedro Alcantra of Lakeland was driving a white 2001 Ford F-150 westbound on Main Street East, when for unknown reasons, the truck traveled across the eastbound lane and into a ditch on the south side of the road. The truck then hit a culvert and crashed into a power pole on the southwest corner of the intersection.

 

Mr. Alcantra died at the scene.

 

Excessive speed is being investigated as a possible cause. Main Street East was closed in the area of the crash for about four hours during the investigation, which remains on-going.
