Florida Highway Patrol reported a Cape Coral man was killed in an accident on I-75 in Sarasota. FHP has identified the man as Kenneth Paul Jones, 46 of Cape Coral.
According to the authorities the accident happened near mile post 171 in the southbound lanes just prior to six in the evening. Apparently Jones swerved off the roadway onto the center median, then greatly over corrected causing his vehicle to cross the roadway and collide with a tree just off the shoulder.
FHP is currently investigating whether alcohol was a factor in the crash.
