A fire ant attack on a Florida man while he was driving caused the 85-year-old to overturn his SUV on a highway in Madison County.
The ants had taken refuge in Louis Marino’s Ford Explorer during Hurricane Irma, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.
Marino, of Tampa, felt the insects biting his legs and lost control of his vehicle, rolling over on Interstate 10 just over a week ago.
After the ants attacked, Marino ran off the road, then overcorrected as he tried to regain control, causing the rollover accident.
Luckily he suffered only minor injuries in the accident.
