Patrick Scott Butz, 43 of Lehigh Acres, was traveling south on Ben Hill Griffin Parkway approaching Miromar Lakes Boulevard E within the outside lane about 7:30 a.m. July 3rd, reported Trooper John T. Schultz and homicide investigator Corporal Eric Gissendaner.
The driver failed to maintain control of the 2004 Ford Mustang and as a result guided the vehicle into the grass-covered median. Subsequently it collided with a utility pole and tree and continued to travel south coming to final rest upon the northbound lanes of Ben Hill Griffin Parkway.
Prior to coming to final rest the driver was ejected from the vehicle, coming to final rest on the northbound east shoulder of Ben Hill Griffin Parkway.
Butz expired on July 4th, 2014 at 1:11 p.m. due to the injuries sustained.
