Williston man killed when dump truck slams into compact car in Levy County

A two-vehicle crash in Levy County involving a small passenger car and dump truck left a Williston man dead early Wednesday morning.

Thomas Wesley Munden, 61, had been traveling north on U.S. Route 41 in a 2013 Ford Focus when he slowed to make a right turn onto SE 2nd Street. He was then hit from behind by a 2019 Hino 195 dump truck driven by 30-year-old Jorge Luis Rivera Gonzale, of Kissimmee, a Florida Highway Patrol report states.

Munden was transported to UF Health Shand Hospital in Gainesville, where he was pronounced dead. Gonzale suffered minor injuries in the crash and also was transported to Shands.

The crash is still under investigation and charges are pending, the FHP report says.
