SARASOTA - A serious crash along Tamiami Trail Friday night left  scattered debris everywhere and sent in one person to the hospital via helicopter.

The crash happened around 8:15pm just south of Constitution Boulevard, near Phillippi Estate Park.

For unknown reasons, a female driving an SUV struck a tree and became trapped inside the vehicle.  Emergency works needed about an hour to extract her before flying her to a trauma center for treatment.

It is unknown at this time if another vehicle was involved.

We will update as more information becomes available.
