FORT MYERS, Fla — Florida Highway Patrol is investigating a rollover crash on I-75 involving three cars.

It happened Wednesday morning south of Daniels Parkway in Fort Myers.

FHP says an SUV was driving southbound in the outside lane, a pickup truck was in the middle lane, and another pickup truck was in the inside lane.

Troopers say the driver of the SUV changed lanes and hit the back of the pickup truck that was traveling in the inside lane.

The SUV continued to change lanes and ended up hitting the second pickup truck on the right side.

The SUV and the first pickup truck it hit both traveled off the roadway and struck the median cable barrier.

Troopers say the vehicles then traveled across the southbound lanes onto the outside shoulder.

The driver of the SUV received minor injuries.

The drivers of the pickup trucks and their passengers did not report any injuries.

The crash caused a slow down to traffic.
