WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say one of the Interstate 75 southbound lanes in Pasco County has reopened following a fiery crash involving a tractor trailer carrying mail and a dump truck.
The Florida Highway Patrol reports that crews repaired the damaged asphalt on one lane, and the second lane was expected to be finished later Thursday. FHP says no one was seriously injured in the Thursday morning crash. Both drivers got out of their vehicles and were taken to hospitals for observation.
U.S. Postal Service officials were at the scene to collect mail, much of which was burned or destroyed in the fire. It was being transported from Jacksonville to Tampa. Customers who believe they may have had mail on the truck should call the postal service's consumer affairs office at 813-354-6265.
