COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- A Cape Coral man died Wednesday in a rollover crash on Alligator Alley.

It happened Wednesday night around 6pm on I-75 westbound near mile marker 77.  That's just before the State Road 29 exit.

Florida Highway Patrol says the driver of a car lost control of the vehicle after a tire separated.  A passenger in the car, 56-year-old Juvencio Galue of Cape Coral, was thrown from the car in the crash.  He was transported to Physician's Regional Collier but was pronounced dead.

The driver, 23-year-old Andres Galue, had minor injuries.
