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.
