Truck Overturns On I-75
NAPLES, FL. -- On July 8, 2013 at 9:10 p.m. a 2000 Ford-150 was traveling eastbound in Collier County on I-75 (State Road 93) in the outside (right) lane near mile marker 84 when the tread of the rear right tire separated and as a result the driver lost control of the pickup truck.
It began to rotate in a clockwise motion and entered the left lane and overturned and continued sliding in a southeasterly direction and entered the grassy south shoulder.
It came to final rest in the south shoulder with the rear end of the truck on the emergency lane facing in a southeasterly direction.
Driver Jose A. Hernandez, 51 of Clewiston had minor injuries, but passengers Michael P. Blissett, 43 and Henry Coreano, 41 both of Clewiston, were taken to Naples Community Hospital with serious injuries.
All three were wearing seat belts said FHP Trooper G. Morales.
