The rain started playing tricks with drivers. A 16 year old driver's Ford Ranger hydro-planed off of Thomasville Road Friday afternoon. The Florida Highway Patrol says he spun and hit the guard rail causing the truck to flip. The young man was miraculously uninjured.
With the rough weather conditions, FHP wants drivers to follow these basic tips. First and foremost, don't speed and go slower as conditions worsen. Keep your headlights on all the time. Put the electronics down, don't get distracted, and always be extra alert. Finally, if you do not have to drive, don't. Relax at home and wait for the weather to clear up.
