Fatal car accident in Collier County

By Kathleen Lorraine. CREATED Jul 13, 2012

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - A Marco Island man died in a rollover accident on Camp Keais Road Friday morning.

Investigators say 22-year-old Clayton R. Burroughs, of Marco Island, was driving southbound on Camp Keais Road when his 1998 Pontiac veered into the grass shoulder.   The car re-entered the roadway and traveled into the northbound lane when it started to spin out of control.

Burrough's car struck several trees as it overturned and came to rest upside down in a drainage ditch just after 6:00.  

Florida Highway Patrol continues to investigate.  They say Burrough's was not wearing a seat belt and his body had to be cut out of the car.  It is unclear if alcohol or drugs played a part in the accident.

Camp Keais Road was closed until 10:00.
