(July 15, 2019) - The driver involved in a nasty road rage-related crash on Hancock Bridge Parkway in April was arrested this weekend after a warrant for her arrest was approved.

On April 25, 2019 around 12:15pm, Cape Coral Police responded to a severe two vehicle traffic crash at the 500 block of Hancock Bridge Parkway. Four occupants were hospitalized, one with life-threatening injuries. A Major Crash Investigator, Victim Advocate, Forensics, and a Drug Recognition Expert responded to assist with this investigation.

On July 12th, after a lengthy and detailed investigation, the Major Crash Investigator requested a warrant for the arrest of Marli Sollitto (W/F, DOB: 11-3-99) for 2 counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon (her vehicle), 2 counts of reckless driving causing serious bodily injury, and criminal mischief over $1,000. The warrant was approved, and Sollitto surrendered herself to the Major Crash Investigator at the Cape Coral Police Department, where she was arrested and transported to the Lee County Jail. Additional charges are pending for the passenger of Sollitto’s vehicle (a 17 year old female) for pepper-spraying the other vehicle’s driver just before the crash occurred.
