An Odessa man has died after a one-vehicle Pasco County accident.

Wayne Carroll Franke, 58, might have had a medical emergency before he lost control of his vehicle, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The patrol said he died at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point Friday morning.

Franke was traveling north on Suncoast Parkway, about one mile south of State Road 52, the highway patrol said.

Troopers said he lost control of his Ford pickup. His truck moved northeast off the roadway, colliding with a fence and stopping in an adjacent tree line, the highway patrol said.

The patrol said Franke’s relatives have been notified.
