According to the Florida Highway Patrol, 19-year-old Justin Green of Ruskin lost control of his 1997 Ford Mustang and went off the road into the ditch. The car overturned onto its passenger side and Green -- who was not wearing a seat belt -- was ejected and trapped underneath. 

It took nearly an hour for emergency crews to free the teen. He was taken to Tampa General Hospital with serious, but non-life threatening injuries.

The FHP says Green was cited for careless driving and not wearing a seatbelt.
