SAN ANTONIO — Four people were seriously injured Monday evening on northbound Interstate 75 in a crash involving a truck towing a horse trailer.
The wreck happened around 7 p.m. just south of the exit for State Road 52, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
Rex Keene Jr., 36, was driving a truck with his son, Rex Keene III, 6, and towing a horse trailer when one of the tires blew out.
Keene lost control of the truck and the trailer jackknifed. He struck a Toyota sport utility vehicle carrying Marcia Patterson, 56, and her son, Max Patterson, 10. Her SUV rolled several times.
Keene's truck then hit a guardrail. The four horses he was towing were not injured.
The drivers and their passengers were transported to St. Joseph's Hospital with serious injuries.
