LEE COUNTY, Fla. - We now know the identity of the driver going the wrong way on I-275 in Tampa this weekend causing a deadly, fiery crash.

Daniel Morris, 28, recently moved to Tampa from Michigan. He'd been living with a friend and it was that friend's SUV he was driving, when he crashed.

Police are still trying to figure out where Morris got on the interstate, and if he was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Meanwhile tonight: saying goodbye to one of those young men who died in that crash. Jim Ilias was a 2012 graduate of Cypress Lake High School in south Fort Myers.

It was a touching and emotional day, as people remember a 20 year old who left such an impact on everyone. More than 100 people came to say goodbye, and pay their respects.

Friends and family silently filed into Hodges Funeral Home to remember Jim Ilias, a 20 year old whose life was taken much too soon.

"He was the person I would call if I would need any help. Hard worker. Straight A student. Never back talked. He was a solid kid he, always worked hard," said Jim's friend Michael Agostino.


People stayed about five minutes inside the funeral home, before they walked somberly to the gravesite. Jim's older brother Ghan tells WINK News this is a very emotional day. Earlier, he cleansed his brothers body, along with his father, and finally laid him to rest.

He says friends and family have come from all across the country to say goodbye. We saw former classmates from Cypress Lake High School, where Jim graduated in 2012, to men and women who knew Jim as a child, growing up.


"Such a wonderful family. Very, very family oriented people. But, it's a life cycle. It's very sad for our community," said a family friend Rumi Kamrul.

USF will hold a funeral for the four fraternity brothers on Thursday.

WINK News spoke to Jim's brother who is now grieving with his family.

"He made friends and always broght a positive outlook to life and thats why all the support is here because he is still here with us," said Ghan Ilias.

"He was a beautiful person, always had a positive attitude and had a great smile and always worked hard in everything he did," said Ilias.
