NAPLES (CBSMiami) — Officials said a child died in a violent crash on Alligator Alley Sunday.

The rollover crash happened near mile marker 55 on Interstate 75 around 12:30 Sunday.

The Florida Highway patrol said the driver of an SUV, 41-year-old Medardo Naranjo, over corrected after a vehicle towing another vehicle that drifted into his lane.  The over correction led to the SUV clipping the rear of the vehicle that drifted and roll over.

The other vehicle came to a controlled stop while the SUV rolled.   Officials said six people were in the SUV, four were from Plantation and two were from Miami.

An 11-year-old child was taken by air to Broward General with serious injuries.
