Lake County, FL – According to the Florida Highway Patrol, a single-vehicle collision taking place Tuesday at around 12:25 p.m. leaves a 48-year old man dead.
The victim was identified as Robert Bussart. For unknown reasons, Bussart drifted off of Florida’s Turnpike outside lane and onto the grass shoulder, said Steven Montiero, FHP spokesman.
Bussart drove across both of the southbound lanes after trying to overcorrect in his 1998 Chevy Blazer. His Blazer sideswiped a guardrail which led to the crash.
Bussart succumbed to his injuries at the area hospital.
The cause of the crash remains under investigation.
