ST. PETERSBURG — Five teenagers suffered minor to severe injuries after their sport utility vehicle flipped Sunday afternoon, authorities said.
Southbound Interstate 275 near 22nd Avenue S was partially closed after a white GMC Yukon XL rolled several times before crashing, said Florida Highway Patrol Sgt. Steve Gaskins. No other vehicles were involved.
The driver lost control of the SUV around 2:45 p.m. One of the teens was ejected out a window.
The teenagers, all 16 and 17 and from St. Petersburg, St. Pete Beach, Pinellas Park and Gulfport, were treated at Bayfront Medical Center for non-life-threatening injuries, Gaskins said.
