A car crashed into two mobile homes and damaged a third with flying debris after the vehicle left Tri Par Drive in Sarasota and overturned late Friday.

Jo Ann Kerr, 57, of Sarasota, was taken to Sarasota Memorial Hospital in serious condition following the single-vehicle crash. No other injuries were reported.

Shortly after 11:30 p.m. Friday a 2008 Toyota Solara driven by Kerr failed to negotiate a curve on Tri Par Drive and traveled off the road, according to a Florida Highway Patrol news release.

The car struck a mailbox and collided into two mobile homes on Tri Par Drive near Blind Brook Drive, damaging a third one with flying debris.

The vehicle also overturned several times before it came to a stop, the release states.

Alcohol does not appear to be factor in the crash.

Kerr faces a careless driving charge.
