Crash causes backups on I-275 in Tampa


TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) – The Florida Department of Transportation responded to a crash on I-275 in Tampa that backed up traffic temporarily.

For a short time, northbound lanes were blocked at Exit 48 Sligh Ave., and traffic was backed up until Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd, according to the FDOT.

Traffic seems to be flowing smoothly at this time.

It’s still unclear how severe this accident was, and how many vehicles were involved in the collision.

This is a developing situation. We will have more updates on when more information is released.
