A Kissimmee man was killed in a Poinciana crash early Sunday morning after his vehicle slammed into a tree.

According to Florida Highway Patrol reports, Glenn Swanson, 67, of Kissimmee, was driving a 2002 Mercury Sable westbound on Cypress Parkway, west of Old Pleasant Hill Road at midnight on Sunday. For unknown reasons, the vehicle went off the road and onto the shoulder on the north side of the parkway, where it sideswiped a tree. The car continued until it hit another tree head-on. Swanson was taken to Poinciana Medical Center where he was pronounced  dead.  Whether alcohol was a factor in the crash is pending, reports stated.
