I-75 Car Accident Kills Two
Officials had a hard time even identifying the type of car that collided with a semi truck on North 75, which killed the car’s two passengers. The license plate had melted from the immense fire that closed the freeway early Monday morning.
The accident happened late Sunday night, and the people inside the car were so badly burned that their dental records will likely identify them.
An Art Van employee was driving the semi and he, fortunately, only sustained minor injuries. According to the driver, he was able to escape his truck before it was engulfed in flames.
Little is still known about the accident’s minute details.
