Oversized load strikes overpass on I-75 in Florida


Florida transportation officials have closed a portion of I-75 following a major overpass strike involving an oversized load.

The crash was reported shortly after 9 a.m. on Wednesday, February 22, on I-75 in Ocala, Florida.

A semi truck hauling an oversized load in the northbound lanes of the interstate struck an overpass at mile marker 347.

No injuries were reported.

Northbound I-75 is closed as crews inspect the overpass for damage. Miles-long traffic backups have been reported on I-75. SW 66th Street is also closed.

Southbound I-75 is open but troopers say that rubberneckers are causing traffic delays.
