MOORE HAVEN, FL. -- A Saturday afternoon crash left the driver dead as his car overturned and ended in a canal.
At 5:18 p.m., according to Florida Highway Patrol Trooper Kenite Webb, Sheldon Hamilton Martinez, 43 of Orlando, Florida was westbound on State Road 25 (US 27) in Glades County in an unknown lane of travel.
Martinez allowed his 1998 Buick Century to travel into the grass median where it continued to travel in a southwest direction and crossed both eastbound lanes of State Road 25.
The car traveled onto the south grass shoulder of State Road 25 and over turned into a canal, coming to final rest on the south shoulder of State Road 25, in the canal, on its roof.
Martinez was transported to Hendry Regional Hospital by Glades County EMS. He suffered fatal injuries as a result of this crash, according to FHP homicide investigator Corporal R. Ellis.
It is unknown at this time if alcohol was a factor according to the FHP report.
Update: Martinez, also known as "DJ Saxwell", was a popular musician, entertainer and DJ, and studied music at Florida's FAMU from 1988 to 1992. He had also lived in Trinidad and Washington, D.C.
He had been on Twitter Thursday night to announce appearances over the weekend including a Friday night FAMU National Convention in Weston, Fl., a Saturday night event in Lakeland, Fl, and on Sunday at the American Legion in Orlando.
