LEE COUNTY, Fla. — A 30-year-old Labelle man died in a two car crash on Buckingham Road on Tuesday evening, officials said.
Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene of a two car crash near Park Road around 7:30 p.m.
The Labelle man was driving north on Buckingham Road and a 57-year-old Fort Myers man was driving south on Buckingham Road with a 60-year-old Fort Myers woman. Both drivers were in a pickup truck.
