Police reported that a 28-year-old Fort Myers man was injured in an accident with two unoccupied police SUVs on Veronica South Shoemaker Boulevard.
According to authorities, a man in a truck that hit the two SUVs was headed northbound on Veronica South Shoemaker Boulevard. The two Florida Highway Patrol SUVs were parked in the left lane collecting investigation evidence of a previous accident on the highway. The pickup hit the rear of the FHP SUV which was then pushed into the other SUV, police reported.
EMS arrived to the scene of the accident soon after it happened to administer on-site first aid to the injured victims in the incident. Emergency crews reported that the driver of the truck, who had not been wearing a seat belt, sustained serious injuries and was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital.
EMS reported that one of the crew attending to the previous accident was struck by the FHP SUV after it was hit and sustained injuries to his leg and was also transported to the hospital.
