A 2001 Honda SUV was traveling westbound on South Village Drive. The driver, for unknown reasons, lost control of the SUV and left the roadway near the intersection of South Village Drive and Casey Road when the vehicle then struck a street sign. The SUV continued westbound and crossed a median and drove onto the west shoulder continuing on into the water that is approximately 6 feet deep. Willis May, who saw the crash, jumped into the water and attempted to pull the victim to safety with no regard to his own safety. However, he could not get the seat belt undone. Deputies arrived and dove into the water and with everyone’s efforts the victim was removed and brought to shore. The victim was transported to University Community Hospital where he pronounced deceased at 11:10 p.m.
