The Cape Coral Police Department today announced that a driver involved in what police called a road rage-related crash on Hancock Bridge Parkway in April has been arrested.

On April 25, 2019, around 12:15 p.m., Cape Police responded to a severe two-vehicle traffic crash at the 500 block of Hancock Bridge Parkway. Four occupants were hospitalized, one with life-threatening injuries. A CCPD major crash investigator, victim advocate, forensics and a drug recognition expert responded to assist with this investigation.

On Friday, July 12, after a lengthy investigation, the CCPD reports that the major crash investigator requested a warrant for the arrest of Marli Sollitto, 19, on two counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon (her vehicle), two counts of reckless driving causing serious bodily injury and criminal mischief over $1,000.

The warrant was approved, and Sollitto surrendered herself to the major crash investigator at the Cape Coral Police Department, where she was arrested and transported to the Lee County Jail.

Police said additional charges are pending for the passenger of Sollitto’s vehicle (a 17-year-old female) for reportedly pepper-spraying the other vehicle’s driver just before the crash occurred.
