PUNTA GORDA, Fla.- A pickup truck carrying a trailer transporting four alpacas rolled over on southbound I-75 at mile marker 164 this afternoon.
Florida Highway Patrol said 20-year-old Christopher Ponader sustained minor injuries and was transported to local hospital in stable condition.
Three of the four alpacas appeared to be uninjured. Charlotte County Animal Control transported the four alpacas to a veterinarian to be checked.
FHP says the slick roads caused the trailer to fishtail before hitting a guardrail, causing the vehicle to roll over.
Ponader was cited for failing to show registration for the trailer.
