Early Saturday morning, April 30, 2022 at approximately 1:50 A.M. emergency personnel responded to a single vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 27 and Chalet Suzanne Road.
The crash involved a 2002 Honda Accord driven by Tyrell Rashad Sloan, a 31-year-old Lake Wales resident. The preliminary investigation indicates that Sloan was traveling North on Highway 27 in the middle lane. As he approached Chalet Suzanne Road for unknown reasons, he lost control of the vehicle. The Honda traveled into the Northeast corner of the intersection closest to Citizen’s Bank where it struck a concrete pole and eventually overturned. Sloan was declared deceased on scene. Excessive speed may be a factor in this crash.
