Florida Highway Patrol said a 37-year-old Sarasota man died in a crash on southbound I-75 near mile marker 39 on Sunday.
According to an FHP report, a 45-year-old Naples man was traveling northbound when his tire failed. This forced his car to cross over into the southbound lanes and struck the front of the Sarasota man’s SUV.
Authorities revealed that the impact caused both cars to travel into the grass shoulder where they became fully engulfed in flames.
The Sarasota man died on scene. The Naples man suffered critical injuries, troopers said.
All southbound lanes and one northbound lane of I-75 in West Broward County were shut down for several hours.
FHP will continue investigating the crash.
