Driver Used Seat Belt But Alcohol Use Under Investigation

IMMOKALEE, FL. -- Serafin Gonzalez - Caracheo, 29 of Immokalee died in a canal crash on State Road 29 north of State Road 82 about 1:30 am Tuesday.

The 2000 Ford 150 pickup truck he was driving was traveling south on State Road 29 on the southbound lane. The driver failed to maintain control as it traveled in a southwesterly direction onto the unpaved grassy west shoulder.

It then traveled in a southeasterly direction and re-entered the roadway crossing the southbound lane and entered the northbound lane. The driver over steered back to a southwesterly direction and the truck rotated clockwise, re-entered the unpaved west shoulder while traveling in a southwesterly direction where it overturned multiple times and subsequently entered a canal.

The truck came to final rest on it's roof submerged in a canal on the west shoulder southwest of where it initially left the roadway.
