A Spring Hill man and his passenger were uninjured in a collision on I-75 last week. The incident closed portions of the interstate for several hours.
According to Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) Public Affairs Officer (PAO) Sgt. Steve Gaskins, at 7:30 p.m. on December 8, a 71-year-old Bradenton man was driving a Kia EV6 sedan south on I-75 when, just north of SR-618, he failed to slow or stop for traffic.
Subsequently, his vehicle collided with the rear of a Ford truck, towing a trailer driven by a 56-year-old man from Spring Hill and containing his passenger, a 56-year-old woman from Spring Hill.
Neither he nor his passenger was hurt in the incident.
The Bradenton driver sustained fatal injuries at the scene of the incident, which closed part of I-75 until 2 a.m. the next morning.
