CAPE CORAL, Fla.  — A Florida Highway Patrol Trooper that was hospitalized is out of the hospital, after he was hit by a pickup truck Sunday morning.

It happened on the Cape Coral Bridge when FHP said the trooper was responding to a single car crash. Sunday evening, a lieutenant with FHP confirmed that the trooper is at home and is recovering.

According to FHP, around 7 AM Sunday, the trooper was assisting with a single car crash of a Hyundai on the Cape Coral Bridge. He was inside his Dodge Charger waiting waiting on a tow truck for the Hyundai. While waiting, a 2005 Toyota Tundra pickup truck crashed into the FHP Dodge Charger.

FHP stated the person driving the Tundra was a 50-year-old man from Cape Coral. The driver of the truck, reportedly swerved from the right lane to avoid traffic when he collided with the rear of the FHP charger. The force of the collision caused the FHP vehicle to hit the rear of a Hyundai from the previous crash investigation.

The driver of the Hyundai was already away from the scene.

Trooper was reported injured and sent to the hospital, but was later released. The driver of the truck was issued a citation for careless driving.
