COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. — UPDATE at 3:00 pm:

Florida Highway Patrol says 13 people had to be rushed to the hospital after a serious crash on Corkscrew Road and State Road 82 this morning.

They say the two vehicles involved were a pickup truck and a 15 seat passenger van.

Investigators say the pickup truck was traveling east on State Road 82 in the eastbound lane while the van traveled west in the westbound lane.
