Five teens survive Interstate 275 rollover crash in St. Petersburg

Five teenagers were recovering Monday morning after their vehicle flipped on Interstate 275.

Mitchell Keith Overton, 16, of St. Pete Beach was driving south with four passengers near 22nd Avenue S on Sunday when his GMC blew a tire, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

The vehicle started to spin and Overton overcorrected, causing it to spin the other way. The GMC flipped several times, and Hannah Elizabeth Tremain, 16, was thrown from the vehicle.

The other passengers in the car were Kayleigh Alexis L'eon, 17, of St. Petersburg; Chelsea Amberlynn Mathews, 16, of Pinellas Park, and Marcos Simeon Hatzilias, 16, of St. Petersburg.

The five teens were taken to Bayfront Medical Center. Their injuries were not thought to be life-threatening.
