TAMPA — The Florida Highway Patrol has identified a man who died after suffering a medical emergency and crashing on the Veterans Expressway last month.

Curtis E. Jarvis, 76, of Clarwater was driving south on the entrance ramp from Hills­borough Avenue to the Veterans about 1:45 a.m. Nov. 14 when he suffered a medical emergency and lost control of his 2015 Mitsubishi Mirage, troopers said.

The car veered into the shoulder and collided with a crash barrier. Jarvis died at the scene. Troopers did not identify him at the time because they had to notify his family.
