Pickup rolls over on southbound I-275, prompting other crashes

PINELLAS PARK — A white pickup rolled over on southbound Interstate 275 on Monday, authorities said, causing a chain reaction that led to other crashes.

Everyone involved in the traffic incident refused treatment, according to St. Petersburg Fire Rescue.

The rollover happened about 2:50 p.m., firefighters said, when a Ford pickup headed south on I-275 rolled off the highway and into a ditch just before the Gandy-Park Boulevard exit.

A green SUV pulled over to help the pickup's driver, but then that vehicle was struck by a brown Toyota Corolla.

A third, separate crash took place near the first two traffic incidents, authorities said, but the driver who caused that crash took off.
