BRADENTON – Florida Highway Patrol has announced that four people were hurt after being involved in a multi-vehicle crash on 75th Street West, in Bradenton Tuesday morning.

The crash took place as a 27-year-old was driving a sedan northbound on 75th Street West, in the inside lane north of the intersection with 34th Avenue West.

Also in the sedan were two young passengers, a two-year-old girl, and a one-year-old boy.

Also traveling north on 75th Street West was a Sport Utility Vehicle driven by a 66-year-old woman. The SUV was traveling in the outside lane in the immediate vicinity of the sedan with the two young passengers.

At 11:47:00 AM, the sedan left the bounds of the inside lane, and the right front of the sedan collided with the left side of the SUV.

The car came to a stop in the northbound lane of 75th Street West, and the SUV traveled to a controlled stop on the sidewalk, just east of 75th Street West.
