An Immokalee man has been charged in a traffic crash that killed a Fort Myers woman.
Rufino Ortiz Hernandez, 28, of 701 S. First St., told Florida Highway Patrol that he had consumed six beers in two hours before getting behind the wheel of his 1998 Ford SUV. He's charged with DUI manslaughter in the Friday night crash.
Troopers said Hernandez was traveling south on State Road 29, south of State Road 82, when he drifted into the northbound lane, hitting Adlean Denett Vance, 41, head-on.
The 1996 Cadillac that Vance was driving became engulfed in flames after the collision, troopers said. Vance was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers tested Hernandez's blood, and determined he had a blood alcohol content of 0.11. In Florida, a driver is considered too drunk to drive with a BAC level of 0.08.
Hernandez was also charged with damaging property, failing to drive within a single lane and driving without auto insurance.
Hernandez was transported to North Collier Hospital for treatment of minor injuries.
