Crystal Crawford-McClure, 28, of North Fort Myers, was a passenger in a Jeep traveling on southbound I-75 near mile marker 134 Friday night, when a FHP vehicle behind her struck the Jeepís rear bumper.

The Jeep veered onto the grass shoulder and overturned, coming to a rest on its roof, according to a FHP report. Crawford-McClure and the driver, Christopher McClure, were ejected.

Christopher McClure suffered minor injuries, as did a 1-year-old child of the same name traveling in the vehicle.

It is unknown whether Crawford-McClure was wearing a seatbelt.
The FHP trooper involved in the crash was not injured.

The investigation is ongoing, FHP Lt. Gregory Bueno said in an email. The trooper was not responding to a call when the crash occurred, and his lights and siren were not on.
