FORT MYERS, Fla.-A Fort Myers woman was taken to the hospital after a serious crash in the Pelican Preserve.

Authorities said a woman driving a SUV lost control on Tirano Court, hitting a car and a garage. She then tried to get out of the vehicle before crashing it into a tree across the street.

They said either the accelerator got stuck or the driver was confused about which pedal she hit.

An ambulance took the woman to the hospital to be checked out.
