Accident On Winkler Avenue, Woman In Critical Condition

Fort Myers Police Department is still investigating a crash that has left a woman in critical condition on Winkler Avenue.

Authorities say the crash happened at the intersection of Winkler Avenue and Colonial Boulevard. A man driving a 2013 Honda Xterra was headed northbound on Winkler Avenue when the accident occurred.

He failed to stop at a red light at the intersection then crashed head-on with another vehicle. The vehicle that was struck was driven by a woman going through a green light headed west on Colonial Boulevard. She was driving a Toyota Corolla.
