A Cape Coral man was killed in a single-car crash Tuesday evening on Veterans Memorial Parkway in Cape Coral.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, at 5:29 p.m., Bradley Wayne Phillips, 48, was driving a 2004 Nissan Quest south on Veterans Parkway just south of Pine Island Road, when he lost control of the vehicle causing it to exit the roadway and partially enter the median.

The FHP reports that the vehicle returned to the roadway but began to rotate counterclockwise back through the median where it struck a tree. The Quest then overturned and came to rest partially in the median and the northbound lanes of Veterans Parkway.

During the crash, Phillips was ejected from the vehicle due to being unrestrained, the FHP said.

Phillips was pronounced dead at the scene.
