(CBS/AP) OAKLAND PARK, Fla. - Police said Fort Lauderdale man Wyman Sims died when his car crashed into a palm tree, minutes after he had apparently stolen a 12-pack of beer from a gas station.
The suspect's gold Chrysler Sebring was found by the deputy wrapped around a palm tree a short distance away. A cold pack of Budweiser was inside the car.
Oakland Park Fire Rescue officials pronounced the 36-year-old man dead at the scene.
The car had a temporary tire on the rear, passenger side, which could have caused the suspect to lose control.
