A 25-year-old Gainesville man is in serious condition after colliding with a tree along County Road 232 on Tuesday morning.

According to a Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) report, the man was driving an SUV west on CR 232 as he approached NW 128th Street around 8:32 a.m. For reasons still under investigation, the man veered onto the north grass shoulder and hit a mailbox. He then traveled back across CR 232 to the south shoulder and struck a tree with the front end of his vehicle, according to the FHP crash report.

Emergency responders transported the man to North Florida Hospital.

The wreck comes on the heels of other accidents over the past week that included two Gainesville women being ejected in a rollover on Sunday morning, a three-vehicle accident at the I-75 High Springs 404 exit on Wednesday evening and a California couple dying when their Tesla collided with a parked tractor trailer at the I-75 Paynes Prairie rest area on Wednesday afternoon.
