FORT MYERS, Fla. — The Florida Highway Patrol is currently investigating after a wrong-way driver crashed on I-75 near the Lee and Charlotte County line on Wednesday. 

The driver was caught driving the wrong way up and down I-75 for several miles until his tires gave out, lost control of the vehicle, and overturned at Mile Marker 149.

FHP said it’s a miracle that no one was hurt or injured. 

“This could have ended tragically, someone could have lost their lives,” Lt Bueno said. 

The suspect was brought into custody. 

The Fort Myers Police Department, who’s also on scene, said the incident stems from an aggravated assault with a firearm investigation which they are currently working on. 

This is an active investigation. Count on NBC2 to bring you the latest information as soon as more information is released.
