Drivers traveling between Manatee and Hillsborough this morning will run into delays due to a crash involving a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s deputy early Wednesday.
According to the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office, a deputy was clearing debris in the road when a passenger car struck his patrol car before 6 a.m. The deputy was out of his car and not injured.
The crash occurred on southbound Interstate 75 in Sun City Center near the U.S. 301 exit. Bay News 9 said delays are also on northbound lanes and begin after Big Bend Road. Wait times are over an hour.
Never miss a local story.
Reroutes to U.S. 301 and U.S. 41 were suggested, but northbound crashes on both highways also delayed traffic.
