According to a news release from the Florida Highway Patrol, a man was killed in a vehicle crash in East Naples.
Troopers were at the scene of the crash in East Naples. The victim, later identified as 45-year-old Lazaro Venegas of Naples, was traveling westbound in the inside lane of Radio Road. He was in a Ford Mustang with one passenger traveling toward Dartmouth Drive.
According to the news release, Venegas was driving at a high rate of speed and failed to slow down. Venegas’ vehicle reportedly struck the rear of another vehicle, a Honda Odyssey, and left the paved roadway.
Upon leaving the roadway, report says Venegas’ vehicle struck a palm tree in the center median and overturned. The vehicle came to a stop facing south in the westbound Radio Road lanes. After striking a wooden fence, the Odyssey came to a stop facing east on the north grassy shoulder of Radio Road.
