LAKE MARY -- A 79-year-old Virginia man was found dead in his SUV in the breakdown lane of Interstate 4 this morning, the apparent victim of a heart attack or other medical condition, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Louis Oliver of Alexandria was found behind the wheel of his 2012 Lincoln SUV with the motor running at 7 a.m. near mile marker 98. Troopers at first thought it was a disabled vehicle, but when the driver showed no response, a trooper broke the driver's side window, Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Sgt. Kim Montes said.
The driver was pronounced dead at the scene of an apparent heart attack, but the medical examiner's office will make the final determination, the FHP said in press release.
