Casey Anthony's Dad Suffers 'Incapacitating' Injuries In Florida Car Crash

George Anthony may have fainted before losing control of his SUV and rolling it over several times, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Casey Anthony's father has been hospitalized with "incapacitating" injuries after a car accident, Florida authorities say.

George Anthony's SUV rolled over several times after he lost control Saturday night while traveling on Interstate 4 between Daytona Beach and Orlando, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. Anthony didn't remember what happened before the crash, according to the troopers.

The report lists his condition at the time of the crash as "ill" or "fainted." He had to be flown to a hospital for the treatment, according to WESH2 in Orlando. He has been listed in serious condition. He was the only one in the car at the time and it does not appear that any other vehicles were involved. 

Earlier this year, George Anthony talked about his strained relationship with daughter Casey Anthony, who was accused of killing her daughter Caylee after the 2-year-old went missing in 2008.

It was weeks before the child's disappearance was reported to authorities, and Caylee's body was not found until approximately six months later. Casey Anthony's trial became a national obsession, with nearly 40 million Americans tuning into at least part of the trial, which ultimately saw her acquitted in 2011.

George Anthony said doesn’t trust his daughter anymore because of some of the things she has said and done. During the trial, Casey Anthony's defense team alleged that he molested Casey when she was a child, an allegation he strongly denied.

During a recent episode of "Dr. Oz," George Anthony said he still grapples with his granddaughter's death.

"I want the answers to why Caylee is no longer with us," he said. "Why she [Casey] victimized her family, why she ultimately victimized Caylee. What she did to her mom, what she did to me and her brother."

Both parents admitted they still feel anger towards their daughter.

"You want to hug her but you want to strangle her at the same time," mom Cindy Anthony said.

"Yeah," George Anthony agreed. "I want to squeeze her until she tells me what the truth is."
