A single-vehicle crash in Sarasota sent a Cape Coral man and another to the hospital.

Jose S. Perez, 27, of the Cape, was driving a Dodge Ram south on state Route 93 on Saturday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. At 11:40 a.m., he drifted from the left lane into the right lane.

Perez reportedly overcorrected, losing control of the truck near mile marker 178.

The FHP reported that the Ram rotated and exited the road into the median, where it overturned.

Perez sustained serious injuries and was transported to Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

His passenger, Daniel Diaz Licona, 23, of Fort Myers, was also hurt.

Licona reportedly sustained serious injuries and was taken to the hospital.

The accident is not alcohol related, according to the FHP.
