Gustavo Chavez Perez, 47, of Zolfo Springs, Fl., was traveling eastbound in the left travel lane on Interstate 10 on Monday, April 18.
Around 3:25 p.m., the right rear tire on Perez’s 2008 Ford F150 blew out, causing the vehicle to veer immediately to the left before overturning in the median.
Perez’s vehicle came to a stop upright with the truck’s front partially blocking the left, westbound lane of the interstate.
Traveling with Perez were passengers Oscar Quiros, 38, of Avon Park, Fl. and Shawn O’Conner, 52, of Lakeland, Fl.
Perez and Quiros sustained minor injuries, with O’Conner not reporting any injury.
Both the driver and the two passengers were transported to Tallahassee Memorial Hospital without further incident.
