MICANOPY, Fla. (WCJB) - Interstate 75 was blocked in both directions after a serious crash injured at least 10 people near Micanopy on Friday evening. Northbound lanes and two southbound lanes have since reopened.
Florida Highway Patrol troopers blocked traffic going north and south after a crash near mile marker 374 involving a semi-truck, cars, and a van. The lanes were blocked to allow a helicopter to land and take a patient to the hospital.
Emergency crews are taking 10 people to various area hospitals with at least one critically injured person. Firefighters say the van was full of members of a cross-country college team from Oregon, including a coach.
