Four taken to hospital with minor injuries after vehicle overturns on I-4

TAMPA — Four people suffered minor injuries after a vehicle in which they were riding on Interstate 4 Wednesday blew a tire and flipped several times, the Florida Highway Patrol said.

Hasan F. Alkhoor, 21, of Tampa was driving an SUV east on I-4 approaching U.S. 301 at about 1:15 p.m. when a tire blew out. He lost control and the SUV overturned several times in the center median, the FHP said. Alkhoor's SUV hit with the center guardrail, went over it and stopped in the grass median on the westbound side of the road, the FHP said.

Alkhoor and his three passengers, Rami Salah, 23, Jaffar Killidar, 20, and Bashar Killidar, 23, all of Tampa, were taken to Tampa General Hospital with minor injuries, the FHP said.
