Deadly I-75 Wreck: In A Twinkling Of An Eye

It can only take a few seconds and life as you know it can be turned upside down or even extinguished.
“It was a very traumatic situation and frightening situation to be out there on I-75. Hearing crashes, hearing explosions, hearing people scream,” said Alachua County Sheriff spokesperson Sadie Darnell.

The interstate had been closed for a time before the accidents because of a mixture of fog and heavy smoke from a brush fire that may have been intentionally set. The decision to reopen it early Sunday will certainly be a focus of investigators, as will the question of how the fire may have started.

All lanes of I-75 reopened late Sunday, but authorities closed the highway again early Monday due to poor visibility caused by fog and smoke.

“It looked like the end of the world”
