A Lehigh Acres man has been arrested and faces a DUI charge after a crash in Tice early Monday morning.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Fran Raul Manzanerez Reyes, 39, was driving a pickup truck east on Palm Beach Boulevard around 1:45 a.m. A car driven by a 49-year-old woman from Fort Myers was traveling in front of Reyes’ truck and eventually slowed to turn. Reyes failed to slow down and his pickup truck rear-ended the woman’s car. The woman was not injured.

After the crash, Reyes traveled off the road right and collided with an unoccupied building
at 4648 Palm Beach Blvd. FHP troopers performed a field sobriety test and found Reyes had a BAC of .237, nearly 3 times the legal limit of .08. He was arrested and transported to the Lee County Jail.

Reyes faces a charge of DUI and driving without a valid driver’s license.
