2 seriously injured in Alligator Alley crash

CREATED Jul. 9, 2013

COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. - A crash Monday night on westbound Alligator Alley at mile marker 84 injured three Clewiston men, two seriously.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 51-year-old Jose Hernandez was driving his Ford pickup when the tread of the right rear tire separated causing him to lose control of his vehicle.  The pickup went into a spin and ended up crashing into a grass shoulder.

Hernandez suffered only minor injuries but two passengers, 43-year-old Michael Blissett and 41-year-old Henry Coreano both suffered serious injuries.
