Four people were taken to the hospital on Monday morning after a multi-vehicle crash on Interstate 4, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

FHP said the crash happened around 5 a.m. on westbound I-4, east of Central Florida Parkway in Orlando.

In a news release, troopers said an SUV was traveling westbound on I-4 and passed the entrance ramp when a pickup truck crossed in front of it, causing the SUV to side-swipe the truck. The crash caused the SUV to crash into a crash attenuator truck.

A fourth vehicle hit some of the debris from the other vehicles in the crash, FHP said.

The driver of the SUV – a 39-year-old Kissimmee man – was taken to Orlando Regional Medical Center with serious injuries, FHP said. Two passengers in the SUV, and the driver of another vehicle were taken to the hospital with minor injuries, FHP said.

Lanes were closed for a couple of hours, but have since reopened.
