Fort Myers Driver Slams Into FHP Patrol Car

A 23-year-old Fort Myers man crashed into a Florida Highway Patrol SUV that was stopped at a red light, according to FHP.

Troopers said the Fort Myers man was driving a sedan around 3 p.m. when he tried to make a right turn at the intersection of US 41 and Palm Pointe.

The driver, reportedly, took the turn too fast and slammed into the left front of a marked FHP SUV with a K9 on board before crashing into a concrete barrier.

FHP said the 44-year-old trooper driving the SUV was taken to a local hospital with minor injuries. The FHP K9 was not injured, troopers said.

The 23-year-old was also uninjured in the crash, according to the crash report.
