TAMPA, FL. – A pickup truck crashed into an FDOT Road Ranger on Thursday, that was assisting at the scene of an unrelated crash around 4:24 pm, according to Florida Highway Patrol.

Troopers say a Nissan Titan, driven by a 35-year-old man from New York City, was traveling southbound on I-275 in a center travel lane.

FHP says that a Chevy pickup, FDOT Road Ranger Incident Response Truck, was stopped along the outside shoulder of the roadway with cones deployed and amber warning lights activated protecting an unrelated crash scene.

Troopers say as the New York man approached the crash scene, he slowed down and lost control of the vehicle on the wet roadway.

The truck entered the inside shoulder, collided with a barrier wall, and was redirected to the opposing shoulder where his truck collided with the Road Ranger Truck.

The Road Ranger, a 34-year-old man from Tampa, suffered minor injuries in the crash. The New York man sustained no injuries.
