One person was killed and a 14-year-old is in critical condition after their vehicle collided with a semi Monday night near Ave Maria.
Emil Kelly Altidor, 42, of the Naples area, was driving a 1987 Toyota pickup north on Camp Keais Road approaching Immokalee Road around 7:15 p.m., according to a Florida Highway Patrol report. At the same time, Ernesto Alvarez Blanco, 55, also of the Naples area, was driving a semi south on Camp Keais.
The Toyota traveled onto the east shoulder, at which point Altidor overcorrected and lost control of the vehicle, which traveled into the semi’s lane, reports said. The front of the semi struck the front passenger side of the Toyota.
Altidor was killed at the scene. Kenny Altidor, 14, a passenger in the Toyota, was transported to Lee Memorial Hospital in critical condition, reports said. Blanco was not injured in the wreck.
Everyone involved was wearing a seat belt. Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the crash.
