The Florida Highway Patrol responded to a three-vehicle crash Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of 30th Avenue West and 9th Street West in Bradenton.
Troopers were dispatched to the scene at 2:10 p.m. Tuesday, according to FHP Trooper Charles Tyus, who investigated the crash. No serious injuries were reported. The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office, Cedar Hammock Fire Department and Manatee County EMS were also on scene to assist.
A white Ford Explorer XLT lay upside-down in an empty corner lot, some of its contents spilled onto the grass. All but one of the vehicle’s windows were shattered, and debris was scattered across the lot — stretching into the sidewalk and curb. Several people stood nearby in curiosity under the shade outside Maaco, an auto body shop.
“I didn’t speak with him at length, didn’t speak with him for a long amount of time,” Trooper Tyus said, referring to the male driver of the vehicle that rolled over. “From what we’ve gathered so far, he’s been transported — not in serious condition. Unknown injuries.”
Details on the crash were sparse Tuesday afternoon as Tyus spoke to one of the drivers involved, a woman who did not wish to identify herself to the Herald. The driver sat against a pole with another woman who was her passenger at the time of the crash.
“That’s the one who run into me,” the driver said, pointing to the vehicle that had rolled over.
