    The ants had taken refuge in Louis Marino’s Ford Explorer during Hurricane Irma, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

    Marino, of Tampa, felt the insects biting his legs and lost control of his vehicle, rolling over on Interstate 10 just over a week ago.

    Marino had parked his SUV in storage for Hurricane Irma and left food in his car. He said he didn’t notice the ants on the floorboard when he got into the SUV, the Democrat reported

    After the ants attacked, Marino ran off the road, then overcorrected as he tried to regain control, causing the rollover accident.

    Luckily he suffered only minor injuries in the accident.
