A Spring Hill man is dead after the tractor/trailer truck he was driving collided with another tractor/trailer and burst into flames.

According to Florida Highway Patrol (FPH) spokesman Sgt. Steve Gaskins, a pair of tractor/trailer trucks were traveling southbound in the outside lane of I-75 at Milepost 321, when the truck driven by a 69-year-old man from Dade City slowed for other slowing or stopped traffic. The 31-year-old man from Spring Hill driving the tractor/trailer behind failed to slow and collided with the rear of the truck ahead.

The impact pushed both vehicles into the highway’s median, where they overturned and blocked portions of north and southbound I-75.

The collision caused the vehicle driven by the Spring Hill man to catch fire.
