The agency says a 48-year-old man from Naples was inside a 2015 Chevy Silverado when it was shredded by the plane. Miraculously, FHP says the man only suffered minor injuries.

Another vehicle, a 2023 Nissan Armada, was also hit. FHP says a 66-year-old woman from Massachusetts was driving. There were two passengers: a 31-year-old woman from Massachusetts and an 85-year-old woman from Massachusetts. Law enforcement says none of them were hurt.

Southbound is still shut down as investigators are still at the scene and cleanup continues.
