Just before 3 am on Sunday, February 16, 2019, a driver in a 2020 Ford Mustang was traveling southbound in the northbound lanes of I-75 when she collided head-on with another vehicle, causing a six-car crash. This occurred between Corkscrew Road and Alico Road. Florida Highway Patrol had to close the northbound lanes overnight. The accident is still under investigation, though alcohol seems to be a likely factor in it.
Floridians are accustomed to sharing the road with large trucks. There is no denying the dangers they pose. Their size, the speeds at which they travel, the distance the drivers must go and other factors increase the risk. If a driver is suffering from a condition like sleep apnea, it can lead to a truck accident with injuries and fatalities.
