Fuel truck crashes, catches fire on I-75; four hospitalized

SUN CITY — A semitrailer truck hauling fuel collided with another car Friday morning, sending four to the hospital with minor injuries and closing the left lane of northbound Interstate 75, authorities said.

The semi caught fire but spilled no fuel onto the roadway near mile marker 236, just west of Little Manatee State Park, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The car that collided with it did not catch fire.

As of 8:30 a.m., the left lane remains blocked as crews remove wreckage. Southbound lanes are open.
