North Fort Myers, FL (May 7, 2019) - Two commercial vehicles were involved in a crash that took place on Monday, May 6th.
Officials responded to the scene in the southbound lanes of I-75, near mile marker 147. Troopers with the Florida Highway Patrol were called to investigate the crash involving the commercial vehicles. According to spokesperson Greg Bueno, the crash caused injuries for at least one person. Troopers did not disclose the full nature or extent of the injuries and no word was released on the cause of the accident.
The southbound lanes of I-75 were blocked due to the collision, causing delays and forcing motorists to look for alternate routes. No further information is available at this time.
We hope that anyone hurt in the crash has a full and complete recovery. Each year, about 250,000 injury accidents are reported across Florida. Many of these injury accidents will take place on major highways as we see in this case. Higher traffic volume combined with higher speed limits creates conditions in which a crash is likely to occur. Unfortunately, due to the higher speeds, many highway crashes will be more serious in nature as well.
