Multi-car rollover with ejection hurts 2 in Hillsborough Co.

HILLSBOROUGH CO., FL – Two people went to the hospital last Thursday after three cars collided on the interstate in south Hillsborough County, reports Patch.

Police say the incident happened at night on the southbound side of I-75 near the Little Manatee River overpass, which is near Ruskin.

The investigation thus far suggests that one of the cars involved in a three-car crash overturned on the interstate. The driver was thrown from the vehicle, at which point he jumped from the I-75 overpass into Little Manatee River. Authorities say he was trying to avoid being hit by another vehicle.

A jet ski team rescued the man from the river and transported him to a local trauma center for treatment.

Another driver from the crash also went to the hospital on a trauma alert.

Both drivers are said to be in stable condition.

The accident remains under investigation.
