ESTERO, FLORIDA (NBC-2.com) – A suspect is dead and a deputy is in the hospital after a shooting took place on I-75 near the Corkscrew Road exit, according to the Lee County Sheriff’s Office.

Witnesses who say they saw the whole thing happen told us a deputy tried to pull over a man near the exit.

The suspect took off in his vehicle, reaching speeds up to 100 miles per hour. Eventually, the driver got out of his car on an off-ramp and attacked the deputy. That’s when witnesses say a third person came over and shot the suspect, who later died.

“There was a lot of other lives that he was putting at risk, including mine and my daughter’s,” said Nicole Ambrosini, who saw it all happen. “I saw a car approaching me from behind at a very fast rate.”

That car, a blue Toyota, “then swerved onto the shoulder on the left side and had to have been around 120 miles per hour,” she said, describing how she watched a deputy give chase. Both cars eventually got off at Exit 123 – Corkscrew Road.

Witnesses saw the driver attack the deputy before they say another man ran up with a gun shouting at the suspect to stop.
