A crash Monday night involving an ATV and a car left a 14-year-old in critical condition and a 16-year-old in serious condition.
Raul San Pedro, 14, was driving the ATV east on 43rd Avenue NE, east of Everglades Boulevard in Golden Gate Estates just after 4:30 p.m. next to another ATV.
Mark Tirado, 58, was driving a 2002 Acura eastbound on the road.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that Tirado’s car hit the back of the ATV, causing it to flip several times and then throwing San Pedro and Andrew Fernando Garcia, 16, both of Naples.
Both teens were initially taken to Lee Memorial Hospital. San Pedro was then transferred to Tampa General, according to FHP.
Tirado suffered minor injuries and was treated at Physician's Regional Medical Center.
Charges in the crash are pending, according to the FHP.
Three people were hospitalized Monday afternoon after an all-terrain vehicle collided with another vehicle near Orangetree.
Two people were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital and a third was taken to a Collier County hospital after the vehicles crashed around 4:45 p.m. near the intersection of 43rd Avenue Northeast and Everglades Boulevard North, said Lt. Greg Bueno, a Florida Highway Patrol spokesman.
As of 8:30 p.m., troopers still were at the hospital and FHP did not have updated information on the patients’ conditions or identities, Bueno said. More information is expected to be released later Monday.
