Manatee County, FL (June 4, 2019) - Five people suffer injuries when a car flipped over following a crash on Sunday, June 2nd. The incident occurred at the intersection of Moccasin Wallow Road and US-41.
Troopers from the Florida Highway Patrol responded to the scene around 3:45 p.m. Initial reports indicate that an 18-year-old man from Cape Coral was driving a Ford Explorer northbound on US-41 when it came to a traffic light at the intersection of Moccasin Hollow Road. There, a 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman was also at the intersection but facing an opposite direction. The Clubman attempted to make a left turn onto US-41 but collided with the Explorer. The Explorer then overturned onto the mediation.
A driver and two teenage passengers in the Explorer were taken to Manatee Hospital for minor injuries, while a 40-year-old passenger in the Explorer suffered serious injuries. The driver of the Clubman also sustained minor injuries and was treated on-scene. Police continue to investigate the crash to determine which driver had the right of way when it occurred. No further details are available.
Reportable car accidents occur every 92 seconds in Florida. Rollover crashes are a common type of collision that occurs when two vehicles collide with one another, especially at high speeds.
