ELLENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - A crash on U.S. Highway 301 near 68th Drive East in Ellenton Tuesday morning resulted in a rollover of a black Chevy truck.

Good Samaritans quickly jumped in to help the stuck passengers inside a black Chevy truck just before 10 a.m. They assessed the situation and helped free the man and woman from inside the SUV. Emergency crews arrived within minutes.

The Florida Highway Patrol says a white Chevy truck ran a stop sign at the intersection and collided with the black truck, which led to the rollover. The driver of the white truck was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The driver and passenger in the black truck were not hurt. The driver of the white truck is being issued a citation for running a stop sign.
