The southbound lanes of Interstate 75 in Pasco County were blocked for three hours Thursday night after a tractor trailer overturned, the Florida Highway Patrol reported.
The crash occurred at 5:52 p.m. near Milepost 293, which is in northern Pasco County.
Troopers said a truck driver from Jacksonville was driving south in the outside lane when the driver of another tractor trailer merged into his path. The Jacksonville driver steered onto the shoulder and hit a light pole, then over-corrected back onto the roadway, which caused the tractor trailer to overturn.
The driver wasn’t injured, troopers said.
The southbound lanes were closed until 8:53 p.m.
No other details were released.
