A Coral Springs man lost his life in the early morning hours of December 7 when his vehicle lost control, striking a tree in the median.

At approximately 3:15 a.m., members of the Coral Springs Traffic Unit were called out to the 300 block of Coral Springs Drive, where a single-vehicle crash had occurred. According to Detective Ernesto Bruna, a preliminary investigation indicates that a 2007 Chevy driven by Joseph D. Dittman, 33, of Coral Springs was driving northbound on Coral Springs Drive, when he lost control of the vehicle, striking a tree in the median.

Dittman was pronounced deceased at the scene as a result of the crash by Coral Springs Fire Department personnel. 

Preliminary investigation indicates that speed may have been a contributing factor in this crash.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Traffic Homicide Investigator Derek Fernandes of the Coral Springs Police Department Traffic Unit at 954-346-1754.
