Ocala Fire Rescue on Wednesday responded to collisions involving three vehicles.
The first collision involved two vehicles in the intersection of Southeast 17th Street and Southeast 18th Avenue, resulting in an SUV coming to rest on its roof. Firefighters responded at 11:54 a.m. and on arrival had to use hydraulic extrication equipment to safely remove the driver.
"The driver was fortunately wearing a seatbelt, and was transported to a local hospital by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries" stated Battalion Chief Nick DeVita.
The two occupants of the other vehicle involved were checked by paramedics and declined transport to a hospital.
While firefighters were working the scene, two other vehicle collisions occurred. One happened just south of 17th Street on Southeast 18th Avenue, and the other in the 2200 block of Southeast 17th Street.
None of the collisions resulted in serious injuries.
