Sentenced for Vehicular Homicide

Ronald Wayne Bray, 52, was immediately sentenced to 10 years in prison followed by 5 years of
probation after being found guilty of Vehicular Homicide following a trial in Fort Myers.

In November 2016, Bray was driving recklessly on I-75 and swerved into the path of another car
just past the Colonial Boulevard exit in Lee County. It caused the driver of that vehicle, a 29-
year-old woman, to swerve off the road. Her car crashed into a tractor-trailer that was stopped on
the shoulder and she died at the scene.

Bray did not stop to help and fled the scene but a passing motorist was able to follow him and get
his license tag number. Florida Highway Patrol handled the crash investigation that led to the
defendant’s arrest.

The defendant has also had his driver’s license suspended for 3 years and must pay restitution to
the family of the victim. He must also do 100 hours of community service at a trauma center or a
facility that deals with victims of car crashes.

Assistant State Attorneys Brenda Wade and Amy Martin prosecuted the case.
