ORLANDO, Fla. - An Orange County Sheriff's Office deputy was injured in a three-car crash in south Orlando Saturday evening, firefighters said.
The crash, which was caused by the deputy, occurred shortly before 8 p.m. at the corner of John Young Parkway and Americana Boulevard, blocking all southbound lanes, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
Troopers, who arrived on scene shortly before 8:10 p.m., said deputy Bertha Osorio, 23, was driving north on John Young Parkway with her sirens active when she lost control of her patrol car and skipped the grass median into the southbound lanes.
Osorio's patrol car then crashed into a four-door 2000 Kia, driven by 45-year-old Lisette Pagan of Kissimmee, driving southbound.
Also driving southbound, Joseph Williams, 37 of Orlando, was unable to stop in time and hit the patrol car, troopers said.
Firefighters said they transported the three patients to Orlando Regional Medical Center.
Osorio is in serious condition but the other two drivers sustained minor injuries, according to the crash report.
