April 13, 2019

MICANOPY, FL. – According to an online news report published at gainesville.com, one person was seriously injured in a vehicle accident that occurred on Interstate 75 in Micanopy, Florida. The accident caused half of the interstate to close, which led to traffic backups in the area for several hours.*

The collision occurred on I-75 North near Micanopy. At about 11:45 a.m., Florida Highway Patrol received a call about a collision by mile marker 377 of I-75. Troopers reportedly arrived to find that three vehicles had somehow been involved in a crash. 

The makes and models of the vehicles were not included in the report from The Gainesville Sun. The report says that two of the vehicle were extensively damaged, and one of them had turned onto its side after the impact. This information was provided by Alachua Fire Rescue, which responded to the scene. 

The report from The Gainesville Sun did not say how the accident occurred. None of the events leading to the accident was reported, nor was information about potential factors in the collision. 

The Gainesville Sun states that one person was trapped inside a vehicle after the accident, and emergency crews extricated him or her and transported him or her to a local hospital for treatment. This person’s injuries were said to be serious. He or she was not identified, nor was anyone else involved in the accident. It is unclear how many people were involved. 

Florida Highway Patrol is continuing to investigate, and no further information had been released at the time of The Gainesville Sun report.
