State Troopers are searching for a driver who has not been located after a three-vehicle crash on I-4 in Mango, according to the passenger of the car. Florida Highway Patrol told ABC Action News that a blue transport bus and two cars collided late Tuesday night.

The crash took place on the westbound lanes of I-4 between McIntosh Rd and Highway 579 near mile marker 11.



Two people were transported to the hospital following the crash, their conditions are unknown at this time.

A man in the car that had flipped over and caught fire told Troopers that he was the passenger and that the driver is missing.  

Sheriff's helicopter is searching the area to see if anyone might have been ejected.

Investigators have not been able to confirm that there is a missing driver at this time but are looking into what the man told them.
