PASCO COUNTY, Fla. – A semi-truck with a load of plywood lost its load on I-75 early Thursday in Pasco County, causing a shutdown and delays.
According to Florida Highway Patrol, around 6:40 am on Thursday, a tractor-trailer transporting plywood was traveling southbound on I-75 near the 290 Milepost.
Troopers say a white Ford pickup with a red passenger door rapidly decelerated in front of the semi-truck for an unknown reason, and to avoid a collision, troopers say the semi-truck braked and steered left, causing the trailer to rotate and a loss of load.
