Lee County, FL (April 10, 2019) - A three-car crash on US-41 left one man dead on Wednesday, April 10th.
According to police, 33-year-old Brick Boss was driving southbound on US-41. At the same time, 53-year-old Philip Setterquist was driving another vehicle in front of Boss. After a school bus stopped in front of them, Boss's vehicle collided with Setterquist's, causing Boss to travel into the northbound lane and collide with a vehicle driven by 59-year-old David Martindale.
Martindale was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, where he later died from his injuries. Boss and Setterquist suffered minor injuries in the crash. According to police, Boss has previously been cited for failing to stop for a school bus. There was no word on whether charges will be issued in connection with the crash.
Deadly accidents take place daily throughout Florida. According to statistics, about eight fatal accidents are reported each day in our state. In this crash, it appears as though David Martindale was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. We wish to offer our condolences to his family during this difficult time.
