Infant and Two Adults Ejected from Vehicle During Crash

The incident occurred on Saturday morning, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Two adults who weren't wearing seatbelts and their infant child, who was "likely unrestrained," were ejected from a car during an accident on Saturday morning, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol.

Around 9:04 a.m. on Saturday, a 2000 Ford Taurus occupied by driver Mario Limon, 25, passenger Desiree R. Parks, 23, and 11-month-old Ruby Limon was headed southbound on the inside lane of I-75 at the 244 milepost, according to the FHP report.

Limon, of Gibsonton, drove into the right lane and over-corrected back to the center median, overturning the car, the report said.

The car hit several trees in the median and ejected Parks, of Riverview, and their child, the report said.

Limon and Parks were airlifted to Tampa General Hospital on Saturday and listed in critical condition on Sunday, according to FHP. Ruby, taken by ground to TGH on Saturday, remained in stable condition on Sunday.

The crash closed all southbound lanes of I-75 until 10 p.m., the report said.

The incident is still under investigation, and charges are pending.
