Road accident in Sarasota leaves one dead

Florida Highway Patrol officials have reported a road accident in Sarasota involving a Cadillac and a Freightliner near the intersection of Gun Club Road around 9:30 Wednesday, January 25. Unfortunately, the Cadillac driver lost his life.

According to official accounts, the incident took place on 17th Street East when the eastbound Cadillac hit a Freightliner while trying to negotiate a right turn to enter Gun Club Road. The car driver was unable to slow down in time and drove right into the rear of the truck before swerving and coming to a complete halt.

The Cadillac driver was pronounced dead on-scene by Sarasota County EMS. He was identified as a 66-year-old man from Sarasota, Florida.

The Florida Highway Patrol Homicide Unit continues to investigate the crash.

Our deepest condolences go out to the departed’s family during this time of grief.
