ST. PETERSBURG - Five local teens were injured Sunday afternoon after a flat tire caused the driver to lose control of their vehicle, which overturned several times.

Mitchell Keith Overton, 16, of St. Pete Beach, was driving a 2003 Yukon XL southbound on Interstate 275 at the 19 milepost about 2:42 p.m. when one of the tires blew and he lost control of the vehicle, according to a report from the Florida Highway Patrol. Overton overcorrected and the vehicle began to rotate clockwise before overturning multiple times before stopping in the southbound lanes of I-275.

Hanna Elizabeth Tremain, 16, of Gulfport was ejected from the vehicle and suffered serious injuries. According to the FHP, she was not wearing a seatbelt at the time of the crash.

Overton and three other passengers, Kayleigh Alexis L’eon, 17, of St. Petersburg, Chelsea Amberlynn Mathews, 16, of Pinellas Park and Marco Simeon Hatzilias, 16, of St. Petersburg were wearing seatbelts and received minor injuries.

All five were taken to Bayfront Medical Center for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Portion of I-275 were closed for about two hours. The incident remains under investigation.
