Cape Coral police have released the identity of the driver in a fatal crash that also left a Lehigh Acres woman seriously burned over most of her body.

The District Medical Examiners Office has identified the driver in the single-car crash that happened early Saturday morning on Rose Garden Road as Patrick Logue, 56, of Cape Coral.

The traffic homicide investigation is continuing, police said Wednesday.

Firefighters responding to a reported vehicle fire at 12:23 a.m. had arrived to find the car engulfed in flames, a seriously injured passenger and the driver with fatal injuries, officials said previously.

Bystanders had helped a female passenger, identified as Susan Reynolds, 28, 2903 52nd Street West, Lehigh Acres, from the car before the Fire Department’s arrival.

Police officials said she had incurred life-threatening injuries with burns over more than 65 percent of her body and was trauma alerted to Tampa General Hospital.

The driver, identified Wednesday as Logue, was not able to escape.
