Fort Myers, Fla.- The Lee County Sheriff's Office says one man is dead after a single-vehicle crash. It happened just before 1:00AM at 3840 Highlight Street. 

The driver is identified as 19- year old James Adam Barfield from Hendry County.

When deputies arrived, they found Barfield had been ejected from the 2004 Chevy pick-up. He was transported to Lehigh Regional Hospital where he later died from his injuries.

Deputies say Barfield was traveling northeast on Highlight Street, when he tried to turn and lost control of the car. They say the car then hit a pine tree, and later came to a stop in nearby shurbbery. Officials say speed and alcohol may have been factors in the crash.
