FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Alico Road is back open after a major crash near the entrance to Gulf Coast Town Center.

The crash happened around 2:30 a.m. near Royal Queen Boulevard, and sent three people to the hospital, one of which was flown by medical helicopter.

The crash resulted in a car being wedged beneath a tractor trailer truck in the westbound lanes of Alico Road.

Those lanes were shut down for almost three hours between Ben Hill Griffin Parkway and I-75.

The semi-truck driver is okay.
