Two people were seriously injured in Lake County after investigators said a truck driver lost control and crossed into oncoming traffic on U.S. Highway 27 in Clermont.

According to Clermont police, a truck heading southbound hit the State Road 50 bridge, and then crossed into northbound traffic, hitting a Dodge Caravan nearly head-on. The truck then rolled down the highway several times, ending up across the road, stopping next to a light pole.

The truck driver was airlifted to an unspecified area hospital. The driver of the Caravan was transported by ambulance.

Police said they are investigating whether a medical condition could have caused the truck driver to lose control.

This is the second crash involving a car crossing the median at this same intersection on U.S. 27 in just over two weeks. On Aug. 2, a similar crash seriously injured the mother and a cousin of actor and former WWE champion Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.
