PUNTA GORDA, Fla. (AP) - A southwest Florida man is hospitalized in serious condition after two all-terrain vehicles collided in an intersection.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, two Punta Gorda men were driving the ATVs late Friday when one stopped in the middle of the roadway.
Troopers say the ATV that had stopped was rear-ended by the other vehicle, which continued driving up onto the stopped ATV. The driver of the stopped ATV was thrown from the vehicle.
Florida Highway Patrol says charges of careless driving and driving under the influence are pending. Both men are in their early 40s. Neither was wearing a helmet.
