Multi-vehicle crashes cause delays on I-75
SARASOTA, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say multiple, multi-vehicle crashes on Interstate 75 are expected to block southbound traffic for several hours heading toward southwest Florida.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that the collisions occurred Friday afternoon near the border between Sarasota and Manatee counties.
FHP says traffic is being diverted onto University Parkway and then allowed to re-enter the interstate on the other side of the overpass.
