FORT MYERS, Fla. - A Fort Myers man faces charges for a Friday afternoon crash that left eight people injured, 2 seriously, including a child.

The Florida Highway Patrol says 25-year-old Jefferson Alexander Ramos was driving east on Daniels Parkway just west of Chamberlain in a minivan carrying five other people including four young children.  

Ramos for some unknown reason crossed into the left turn lane jumping the concrete median hitting the left side of a Chevy Tahoe.  The collision caused the Tahoe to overturn onto the shoulder before hitting a tree, seriously injuring its driver, 30-year-old Justin James Dunn of Lehigh Acres.  A passenger in the Tahoe also suffered minor injuries while a third escaped unharmed.

The minivan driven by Ramos went into a spin before it crashed into a tree.  3-year-old Caleb Turner of Fort Myers was the most seriously injured in the minivan.  Two 2-year-old's and a 5-year-old in the minivan suffered minor injuries as did Ramos and another woman in the vehicle.

The FHP says Ramos was charged with failure to drive in a single lane and with driving without a license
