A Bradenton teenager suffered minor injuries in a rollover crash late Sunday afternoon at the junction of State Road 70 and Interstate 75, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

Victoria Williams, 19, was westbound at 5:56 p.m. on S.R. 70 in the far left lane and crossing through the intersection at the I-75 southbound exit ramp when she swerved to the right, the report said. Her 2005 Ford Escape crossed three lanes of traffic, traveling off the north shoulder and rolling over. The vehicle came to rest overturned on its roof 34 feet off the north shoulder of the roadway, the report said.

Williams was wearing a seat belt and was not taken to a hospital. Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, and no citations were issued, the report said.
