Naples man seriously injured when car crashes into tree off I-75

— A 33-year-old Naples man was seriously injured early Saturday when he lost control of his car on Interstate 75 in Collier County and crashed into a tree.

Osmany Medinilla was taken by air ambulance to Lee Memorial Hospital in Fort Myers with serious injuries after the 5:30 a.m. crash, but was listed in stable condition, according to a Florida Highway Patrol report.

The report says Medinilla was driving north on the inside lane, near mile marker 104, about a mile south of the Golden Gate Parkway interchange, when he lost control of the car.

He was approaching the mile marker when he veered off the right side of I-75 and hit the tree, according to the report, which says he was wearing a seat belt.

The report says the investigation is continuing and charges are pending.

Collier court records show Osmany Medinilla Cordero racked up four tickets in 2010 and 2011 and paid fines for not wearing a seat belt, failing to stop for a school bus, running a red light, and speeding for driving more than 70 mph on an interstate.
