According to the Florida Highway Patrol, two people were killed in a three vehicle crash on State Road 82, east of Rod and Gun Club Roads.
According to the FHP two cars were traveling eastbound on St. Road 82. One was a driver from Fort Myers and he was driving a 2016 Dodge Ram Truck that had lumber in the back of his pickup. The other was Cameron Matthew Goltry, a 25 year old man from Lehigh Acres. Mr. Goltry was driving a 2002 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder GS and he was behind the Dodge Ram Truck. It was reported that some of the lumber fell out of the Dodge Ram Truck’s bed.
Antonio Abreu Lopez, a 32 year old from Lehigh Acres, was driving a 2016 Kia Forte. He was traveling west on State Road 82, the FHP said.
The collision happened when the driver of the 2002 Mitsubishi swerved to miss the lumber and entered in the path of the 2016 Kia.
Goltry was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident. The driver of the Dodge Ram Truck did not sustain any injuries.
Lopez sustained minor injuries and was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, the FHP said. One of his passengers, Mireya Lopez, sustained serious injuries. Lopez’s second passenger, 24 year old man, was not wearing his seat belt. It was reported that he later died at the hospital.
An investigation on the three vehicle crash is ongoing and charges are still pending.
