WELLINGTON, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a Florida man was found dead after his pickup truck went into a canal.

The Palm Beach Post reports that the body 43-year-old Joseph Anthony Donatelli Jr. was recovered from the Wellington canal Friday morning.

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue crews responded after reports of a truck partially submerged in a canal.

Deputies weren't sure how long Donatelli had been in the water before the truck was reported.

It appeared as though the truck had hit a guardrail before going into the canal.
