FHP stated the crash occurred at Sunday when the five were traveling east on I-75.  The driver of the car, Justin Ramon 17 year old, began to change lanes from the right lane to the left to avoid  slower traffic.  While Ramon attempted to change lanes he nearly drove into a car coming up the middle lane in the blind spot and swerved sharply back to the right to avoid a collision. Ramon over compensated causing the Ford Focus to overturn and rollover multiple times, crash through a fence and land in a canal.

Ramon who was not wearing a seat belt at the time of the crash was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital for treatment of minor injuries with three others, Katlyn Garland 17, George Ramon 19, Mary Stamps 28. Another passenger had been taken to Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte also with only minor injuries.

Amazingly eveb the driver of the car who was not wearing his seat belt escaped the dramatic crash with only minor injuries – though he will not escape being sited by the Florida Highway Patrol for careless driving.
