An Florida man died in a crash Wednesday evening when his vehicle rolled over at the intersection of U.S. Highway 17 and the Downing Musgrove Causeway, according to the Glynn County coroner.

Coroner Marc Neu identified the man as Frank Butterfield, a 69 year old from Amelia Island.

A police officer reported to dispatchers at around 5:30 p.m. Wednesday via emergency radio communications that a vehicle had overturned near the intersection and that Butterfield was in the road with possibly serious head injuries. He called for an ambulance and requested it come quickly.

The Georgia State Patrol could not be reached Thursday to determine the cause of the crash.
