The Florida Highway Patrol reports Monday night a fatal crash has shut down southbound Interstate 75 near mile marker 217 near State Road 70 in Manatee County.

This is the same area where traffic has already been scrambled from early closures due to chunks of concrete falling from the University Parkway overpass.

More details soon as they are made available.
