A rollover crash on Interstate 75 in Pasco County sent four people to the hospital and closed the roadway during the evening commute Friday, according to Pasco County Fire Rescue.

A pickup truck rolled multiple times near mile marker 283, and “multiple patients” were ejected from the vehicle, Pasco County Fire Rescue said in social media posts shortly before 5:30 p.m.

The four were airlifted to area hospitals, and traffic was halted to make room for the helicopters to land, the posts said.

Traffic was backed up on I-75 North from State Road 56 to mile marker 283 into the evening, according to a tweet from Florida 511, a traffic information page provided by the Florida Department of Transportation.

A tweet shortly after 8 p.m. noted that I-75 South was clear.

FL511 posted an updated tweet at 9:30 p.m. to let drivers know the traffic congestion had cleared in the northbound lanes as well.

No other details were available as of this writing.
