Clewiston Crash Takes Life

Victim Flies Across Two Lanes - Ends In Canal

CLEWISTON, FLORIDA  (October 23, 2006) -- A 2000 Ford SUV driven by Ingris Chalrez Medina, age 23 of 550 N. Hacienda Street in Clewiston, ended up in a canal, five miles west of Clewiston, killing the driver. FHP Trooper L. M. Smith Jr. said Medina was traveling west on US 27 Monday at 6:30 A.M. and for unknown reasons the vehicle crossed the median becoming airborne, traveling over both the eastbound lanes, and over the guardrail on the south side of US 27, entering a canal, coming to rest on its roof, submerged under water.

Alcohol was apparently not a factor, and the body was transported to the Fort Myers Medical Examiner's Office.
