JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A 56-year-old man died when the 2008 Mercedes he was driving lost control Thursday afternoon.

Dennis Fernandez was driving northbound on I-295 south of Heckscher Drive around 2:40 p.m. Wednesday when for unknown reasons he lost control of his vehicle on the wet roadway, a Florida Highway Patrol traffic crash report said.

The report said the roadway was wet from a previous rain shower.

When Fernandez lost control of his vehicle, he spun around, traveling onto the roadway's grass shoulder, knocking over a light pole.

After hitting the light pole, Fernandez's car continued towards the woods line, hitting a large tree with the car's left side.

Emergency personnel transported Fernandez to Shands Jacksonville where he was pronounced deceased.
