Fiery Crash in Pasco Closes Section of I-75 Overnight
No one was injured in the crash, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
PASCO COUNTY – A fiery one-vehicle crash closed a section of I-75 overnight while repairs were made to burned pavement, the Florida Highway Patrol said.
The crash closed both southbound lanes of I-75 for several hours after the 3:10 p.m. crash. By about 1:30 a.m., crews had repaired one lane, which was again open for travel. Repairs to the second lane were expected to be finished by about 6 a.m.
The crash happened Thursday (July 2)) on southbound I-75 south of State Road 52. Troopers said Ahmed Montano, 31, of Tampa, was driving a 2006 Volvo dump truck south on I-75 when he collided with the barrier wall. After the impact, the dump truck came to rest in the outside lane and burst into flames. It is unclear why he hit the barricade wall. No one was injured.
