HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. – A 31-year-old Largo man was killed in crash that happened around 1:05 am on Tuesday, according to Florida Highway Patrol.
Troopers say the man was driving a car traveling westbound on I-4 approaching US-301 in the outside lane with a tractor-trailer behind him.
Investigators say the man was driving at a very low speed and the tractor trailer overtook and collided with the rear of the sedan.
The car was propelled to a stop along the inside shoulder of the highway.
Troopers say the tractor-trailer also traveled to the inside shoulder and overturned.
The Largo man was transported to an area hospital but died from injuries suffered in the crash. The driver of the tractor-trailer, a 42-year-old St. Petersburg man, suffered only minor injuries.
