One Injured in Rollover Crash, Airlifted to Trauma Center
BROOKSVILLE – One person was injured in a single vehicle rollover crash this afternoon, shutting down traffic in both directions of Cortez Blvd for several minutes.
There are unconfirmed reports that the vehicle crossed over the median from the eastbound lanes, plowed through a fence, and then rolled over, coming to rest against a tree.
Several witnesses ran to the victim’s aid and held the vehicle on its side until first responders could shore up the vehicle, preventing it from rolling over.
The male driver and only occupant of the vehicle was extremely combative with rescue personnel as they attempted to strap him to the gurney.
The victim was airlifted to a nearby trauma center where his condition is unknown at this time.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating the cause of the crash.
