PLANT CITY -- A Lutz man died Tuesday night after he suffered a heart attack while driving and wrecked his car on Interstate 4, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Floyd A. Holcomb, 62, of 17803 Sunrise Drive, was driving his 1997 Chevy eastbound on I-4 shortly after 9 p.m. Just west of the McIntosh Road exit, the FHP said, he had a heart attack and lost control of his car.

The car swerved onto the median and then across the westbound lanes, landing in a ditch.

Holcomb was taken to Brandon Regional Hospital, where he died.
