ORLANDO, Fla. — Four construction workers were injured in a crash on Interstate 4 early Friday, the Orlando Police Department said.
Police said the SGL workers were taken to two different hospitals. Two of the workers were seriously injured and the other two suffered less serious injures.
Investigators said a newer model dark-colored SUV was traveling eastbound on I-4 near the Par Street exit when it struck a 2016 black Hyundai Sonata.
The driver of the Sonata lost control and struck a wall. Then, the car bounced off the wall and veered and drove into the lane closure where the four SGL employees were working.
Police said the Sonata struck the four workers.
The driver of the Sonata was taken to a hospital and is in stable condition.
Police said the dark-colored SUV fled the scene.
Fuel spilled on the roadway, causing traffic to be diverted off the eastbound lanes of I-4 at Princeton Street. The road has since reopened.
No other details were available.
