Fatal crash closes lanes on I-75 south in Sarasota

(WFLA) — Due to a fatal crash between a semi-truck and a passenger car, only one lane for southbound I-75 at mile marker 190 in Sarasota County is open at this time.

Please expect major delays due to extended traffic crash investigation and avoid the area if possible. News Channel 8 traffic reporter Leslee Lacey says traffic backed up, and northbound is slow approaching the crash due to spectator slowing.

The alternate route is US 41.
