LEE COUNTY, Fla. -- A Lehigh Acres man is in critical condition after he was thrown from his ATV this weekend.

This happened Friday afternoon on Richmond Avenue North near 16th Street East.

According to Florida Highway Patrol, 32-year-old Jorge Jorge was towing 26-year-old Joshua Frazier's ATV when he suddenly hit the brakes, causing Frazier's ATV to rear end his own.

That threw Frazier off his ATV.

Troopers say neither men were wearing a helmet at the time of the accident.

Frazier was taken to Lee Memorial Hospital with critical injuries.
