Florida Highway Patrol reported three people from Sarasota were seriously injured when the driver of the car they were riding in lost control on Midnight Pass Road and crashed.
FHP said the accident happened when the driver of the car, Leann Outing a thirty year-old from Sarasota, was heading west on midnight pass approaching the intersection with Higel.
Outing failed to stop and attempted to continue north on Higel avenue. Instead the car made a sweeping turn to the right and crossed over both the north bound and southbound lanes where it drove off the road on the west side.
After running off Higel onto the shoulder the car crashed into a sign, mailbox and then slamming into a tree.
The collision happened with enough force to seriously injure, Outing and her two passengers despite the fact that they were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.
Passenger 29 year old Charles Olson and the driver, Leann Outing were taken to Blake Medical Center for treatment. Passenger Malachi Jackson a 28 year-old also from Sarasota was taken to Sarasota Memorial for treatment of serious injury.
FHP has stated that the crash is under further investigation, but has not said whether or not alcohol was a factor.
