FORT MYERS, Fla. - This morning at 3:57 a.m. the Fort Myers Police Department responded to a crash near the intersection of Colonial Boulevard and Via Royale. The driver of a Toyota pick up truck was traveling east on the Midpoint Bridge, just east of the McGregor Boulevard overpass, when he lost control of the vehicle.
The Toyota spun out of control hitting several trees and a light pole. The light pole fell across both eastbound lanes. The driver of a second truck was unable to brake in time and struck the downed light pole and trees. The second driver also lost control and ended up in the median.
