Overturned Toyota in Orlando Results in Driver’s Hospitalization
Police within Orlando are in the process of investigating an auto accident that took place on the morning of Monday, August 5th, and resulted in the injury and hospitalization of a single individual. According to reports from the Florida Highway Patrol, it was close to 6:30 in the morning when a 27-year-old man from Orlando was behind the wheel of a four-door Toyota, driving down Interstate 4, close to the Fairbanks Avenue. It is believed that the driver of the Toyota was the only person in the vehicle at the time of the incident.
While the precise details of what occurred remain murky, what we know at this time is that the Toyota was headed down the eastern lanes of I-4, close to Winter Park, when another vehicle entered its lane in such a way as to force the driver of the Toyota to try and swerve suddenly out of the way. As a result of this swerving, the driver of the Toyota momentarily lost control of their vehicle and collided with a wall close to the road. It is not clear if this wall was the barrier between the eastern and western lanes or if it was a wall located along the far right shoulder. Either way, the force of the crash resulted in the Toyota flipping over, trapping the driver within the vehicle.
It is not known if the driver of the car that cut the Toyota off remained at the scene of the crash or if they continued to drive away. It is possible that the driver of the second vehicle was not even aware of the fracas that they caused, as it is likely that the entirety of the crash happened behind them.
After the emergency response crews were notified regarding the incident, they rushed to the area to assist the individual who was trapped within their overturned vehicle. It is believed that this person was not in critical or serious condition as a result of the crash, but they were nevertheless transported to a nearby hospital for treatment of injuries that were reported as being minor.
