Two North Port men were airlifted to area hospitals after a crash Wednesday on I-75 in Sarasota County.

The FHP says 52-year-old Paul Gonyon ran off the road into the median when he unknowingly swerved off the roadway and flipped.

The car behind him was being driven by 52-year old Jay Vaughn, also of North Port. He slammed his Toyota into the Border Road overpass as he tried to avoid Gonyon.

Both men were listed in critical condition- the crashes shut down I-75 for more than an hour.
