News: 3 hospitalized in Sarasota wreck involving semi-truck

SARASOTA, FL – A two-vehicle crash involving an 18-wheeler left one woman in critical condition and two others hospitalized this morning in Sarasota, reports WFLA News 8.

Police say the incident happened just before 5 a.m. on the southbound side of I-75 near Bee Ridge Road.

The preliminary investigation suggests that a southbound semi-truck collided with the rear of a BMW sedan on I-75. Authorities say the BMW was travelling at slower speed than the semi-truck at the time of the crash.

The people in the BMW sustained serious injuries, and one 21-year-old woman from Brazil is in critical condition.

It is unclear if anyone in the 18-wheeler suffered injuries from the accident.

A full investigation is underway.
