FHP: I-75 southbound lanes reopen after crash involving semi trucks in Bushnell

Interstate 75 has reopened after a crash that shut down the southbound lanes in Bushnell for hours on Friday morning.

Florida Highway Patrol says a semi truck driver was traveling southbound in the center lane and another semi was traveling in the outside lane going in the same direction. As the semi left the center lane and was entering the outside lane, troopers say it struck the left rear side of the trailer being towed by the other semi.
