Venice Man Dies In Crash Near Port Charlotte On El Jobean Road


PORT CHARLOTTE FL– Florida Highway Patrol has announced that a man has died while involved in a fatal car accident at Port Charlotte early Tuesday morning.

The crash happened as 69 year old William Slater of Port Charlotte was driving a 2016 Nissan Versa eastbound from Hollis Avenue while facing the stop sign at the intersection with EL Jobean Road.

At the same time 30 year old Zahid Butt, of Venice FL in  a new 2020 Leandro model Land Rover SUV, was driving southbound in the left lane on El Jobean approaching the intersection of Hollis Avenue.

At approximately 5:12 am, Slater, the driver of the 2016 Nissan Versa failed to observe the Sport Utility Vehicle approaching and entered the intersection. Slater traveled east across the southbound lanes of El Jobean, and drove  directly into the path of the oncoming Land Rover. The SUV collided with the left side of the car at speed.  The force of the crash rotated the Nissan Versa and it finally  came to rest within the median.  The Land Rover SUV came to a stop in the right northbound lane of El Jobean Road.

Slater died as a result of injuries sustained in the crash. Butt was not hurt in the accident.

The crash remains under investigation.
