Brevard County (FL) Sheriff's Office Deputy Kevin Stanton, 32, of Titusville was killed in the crash at 5:10 a.m., according to the Florida Highway Patrol. He was a training officer for the sheriff's office and had been with the agency for more than a decade, officials said.

The right front tire of the semi, which was loaded with car parts, sustained a tread separation, and the truck veered into the path of the deputy's cruiser, the FHP said. Both vehicles were southbound near mile marker 227.
