FORT MYERS, Fla. - A silver Honda split in half when it crashed into a Waste Pro garbage truck in the westbound lanes of Colonial Blvd. at Ortiz Avenue Tuesday morning. The road was closed for about an hour, making a rough commute for drivers.
The driver of the Honda, Valentin Chavez Gonzalez, was cited for careless driving for running the red light. Gonzalez told police he ran the light because a driver stopped next to him, got out of the car and started making threats.
The two people in the Honda were taken to the hospital for treatment.
