SARASOTA -- Southbound traffic on Interstate 75 in Sarasota County is barely crawling after a traffic crash Monday morning.
The crash, which was reported at 7:39 a.m., happened just south of University Parkway, according to the Florida Highway Patrol website.
The Florida Department of Transportation reported via Twitter that the left lane had been blocked but that it was now cleared.
FHP said it was unknown if anyone had been injured in the crash.
Nearby on the northbound side of the interstate, a motorist said he saw law enforcement activity and that someone was in handcuffs. It was not immediately known whether the two incidents are related.
