Authorities say they are seeking information for a driver accused of causing a multi-car crash involving a semi-truck on I-75 Monday morning.
At least five people were injured in the crash that involved a semi-truck that rolled over and one other vehicle, troopers said.
According to the Florida Highway Patrol, an unknown vehicle cut off a 32-year-old Lehigh Acres semi-truck driver causing him to swerve into a Sedan driven by a 68-year-old Tampa man. This forced the two cars to crash into each other and the semi-truck swerved again crashing into a third car driven by a 55-year-old New York man, troopers said.
The semi-truck driver then veered to the left and caused the truck to roll over onto its right side in the median.
Investigators said the semi-truck driver and all other drivers and passengers involved in the crash suffered only minor injuries.
Troopers are still investigating the crash and are looking for a gray Dodge Challenger Sedan that the semi-truck driver described as causing the crash.
The crash completely shut down the northbound lanes of Interstate 75 near the Collier and Golden Gate exits for hours while crews worked to clear the scene.
FHP is investigating the cause of the crash and ask anyone with information to contact them or SWFL Crome Stoppers at 1-800-780-TIPS.
