According to the report, an 18-year-old passenger suffered life-threatening injuries after she was ejected during a two-car accident in Cape Coral.
It was also reported that three other occupants in the two cars were taken to the hospital.
According to a news release from the department, two cars were heading west near the 500 block of Hancock Bridge Parkway, side by side. A silver 2001 Honda Accord, driven by 18-year-old Tiana Lassalle, was in the outside lane.
Report says a black 2014 Dodge Journey driven by 19-year-old Marli Sollitto, was in the inside lane.
Police said Lassalle’s Accord veered into Sollitto’s path. The driver’s side of the Accord collided with the Journey’s passenger side. The Accord’s rear rotated counterclockwise in front of the Journey, sending them to the median’s curb in a “T-bone” formation. Consequently, the trees uprooted with the Accord landing atop the Journey.
Report says Lassalle’s passenger, 19-year-old Walter Caboa was ejected, sustaining serious injuries.
It was also reported that Sollitto suffered non-life-threatening injuries in the accident as well as her 17-year-old female passenger.
All four were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers.
