Officials said the military vehicle was traveling with other military vehicles at the time of the crash. The one involved in the crash was driving in the outside travel lane when the driver tried to change lanes into the outside center lane, according to an update from Florida Highway Patrol. Another vehicle was in the outside center lane and that's when the Humvee driver overcorrected and swerved to the right to avoid hitting it. This caused it to overturn in the outside shoulder. 

No contact was made between the Humvee and the other driver. 

The driver was identified as a 20-year-old man from Orlando. He, along with two passengers – a 44-year-old man from Clermont and 18-year-old man from Orlando – were transported to a local hospital. Their current conditions are not immediately known. 

At the time of the crash, officials said one person was trapped underneath the Humvee and had to be extricated, the Seminole County Fire Rescue Department said. It remains unclear at this time which of the three passengers was extricated. 

The crash also prompted a fuel leak, which has since been contained and cleaned up.
