I-75 FATAL FOOD TRUCK CRASH
Another fatal I-75 crash occurred this week when a food truck blew a tire just north of Fruitville Road, causing it to flip over and catch on fire. The crash occurred at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning, August 16, 2022, and required I-75 Southbound lanes to be shut down temporarily. Both occupants of the food truck were pronounced dead at the scene, despite good Samaritans’ rescue efforts.
The crash is still under active investigation by the Florida Highway Patrol Traffic Homicide Unit. However, according to the Sarasota County Sheriff’s Office, the crash appeared to be due to a “very tragic example of a catastrophic tire failure.”
