Shortly after midnight on Wednesday, May 9, the Lee County Sheriff’s Office responded to a vehicular accident that occurred near the intersection of Hancock Bridge Parkway and Orange Grove Boulevard.

A 2001 Nissan attempted to negotiate a curve while traveling westbound on Hancock Bridge Parkway.  The Nissan failed to negotiate the curve causing it to exit the roadway.

The vehicle struck a culvert and became airborne. The Nissan subsequently struck a power pole before coming to a final rest. 

The driver and sole occupant of the Nissan, Amber Faith Udell (B/F  DOB 09/25/91) of Cape Coral, was transported to an area hospital where she was pronounced deceased. It is unknown, at this time, if alcohol/drugs were a factor in the crash. 

The next of kin for the deceased has been notified of her passing. 

The Lee County Sheriff’s Office is asking members of the community to provide information regarding the incident.  Witnesses are asked to contact LCSO Detective Leonard Gould at 239-477-1636 or to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS (8477).
