COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. -- A four-vehicle crash on Immokalee Road left two people dead Sunday, including a 1-year-old child.

It happened at 4:09 p.m. at the intersection with Collier Boulevard.

According to Florida highway Patrol, the driver of a heavy-duty pickup truck was driving eastbound on Immokalee Road when he lost control and rear-ended a car in the eastbound right turn lane approaching Collier Boulevard. The collision sent the car across the intersection and over a raised concrete median.

There were four people in that car. Two passengers died in the crash: 19-year-old Jennifer Henao and 1-year-old Catelea Henao of Naples. Another passenger, 1-year-old Lexie Cordova of Naples was critically injured and taken to Tampa General Hospital. The driver, 22-year-old Marci Quintaro of Naples, was also seriously injured and taken to Lee Memorial.

Following the initial collision, the truck continued to strike the rear of an SUV, which was pushed into another SUV. Just one minor injury was reported in the first SUV.

Both occupants of the truck sustained minor injuries and were taken to NCH North.

Charges are pending further investigation.
