Hendry County Man Dead After Fleeing Prior Crash Scene
Wayne P. Hull, 25 of LaBelle died in a 12:13 a.m.crash on Ben Hill Griffin Parkway north of Estero Parkway Saturday. His 1997 Dodge truck was driving southbound when he lost control on a curve.
The Florida Highway Patrol says Hull was fleeing a prior traffic crash.
A witness says he was driving erratically and possibly impaired. The truck became airborne and passed over a 2006 Volvo driven by 16-year old Austin Hendry of Ft. Myers. Hendry went to a nearby fire station to report the crash. Debris from Hull's truck caused $1000 worth of damage to the Volvo. Hendry had no personal injuries.
Hull was pronounced dead at the scene. He was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash. Tests are pending for alcohol use by Hull.
