A Deadly Car Crash Results in 16 Injured

Format Updated August 16, 2018

While the crash is still being investigated, it is believed a pickup truck rear-ended a passenger van, which resulted in the van’s driver losing control and crossing the median on to oncoming traffic from the northbound lanes. The truck was flipped on to its side.

The car accident resulted in one death and five victims being airlifted to the hospital. One woman was pinned underneath the van as several occupants were ejected from the vehicle, but by using a car jack, good Samaritans were able to lift up the car and remove her.

The fatality was of eighteen year old Lauren Vanreese from Andover, Minnesota. She was traveling with family in the van after visiting Fort Myers for a spring training game with the Minnesota Twins.

One of those injured was also the winner of a $150 million Powerball in 2013.


Nisbany Surit Garcias of Fort Myers was intoxicated at the time of the crash. His BAC (blood alcohol level) was at 0.182, which is more than twice the legal limit. His blood was drawn more than four hours after the accident.
