LAND O'LAKES — A 58-year-old man from Odessa died Friday while driving on the Suncoast Parkway in Pasco County.

Wayne Franke was driving a 2013 Ford pickup, travelling north on the parkway, about a mile south of State Road 52. According to a release from the Florida Highway Patrol, Franke possibly suffered a medical emergency. He lost control of the car and it left the road, hitting a fence and coming to a stop next to the tree line. He was transported to Bayonet Regional Medical Center where he later died.
