FORT MYERS, Fla. - A two year old girl is in critical condition at a Tampa area hospital after a serious crash Monday afternoon in Fort Myers.
The girl was one of two children injured in the crash. A six year old boy was treated and released from Lee Memorial Hospital, along with two adults in the car.
Witnesses tell police a stationwagon appeared to have a flat tire and was driving slowly along Winkler Avenue Extension when the car was rear-ended by a dairy delivery truck. The force of the crash heavily damaged the rear of the car, and sent the vehicle veering into the ditch.
Police say witnesses came to the aid of two children inside, with one giving CPR to the girl.
Officers say the driver of the truck was not injured. It's unknown if any citations or charges will be filed.
