NORTH NAPLES, Fla. — One person died in a crash Sunday morning at the intersection of Livingston Road and Vanderbilt Beach Road, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

The single-vehicle wreck happened around 7:37 a.m. Janet S. Eash, 78, of Naples, was pronounced dead at the scene.

Eash was driving a 2008 Honda CRV when she drifted across several lanes, continued across Vanderbilt Beach Road and Livingston Road, and hit an electrical box, the FHP said. The Honda overturned and Eash was ejected from the vehicle.

Eash was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash, according to the FHP. An investigation is underway as to whether alcohol was a factor.

The crash created a northbound roadblock at Livingston Road, north of Vanderbilt Beach Road, according to the FHP. All lanes have reopened shortly before 11 a.m.
