ZEPHYRHILLS, FL (WFLA) -

The Pasco Sheriff's Office and Pasco Fire Rescue are on scene of a crash that happened between what officials describe as a mobile meth lab and a pedestrian.  Deputies say they found the driver of the vehicle out of the pickup and overcome by fumes, apparently from the meth lab.  He was transported via ambulance to a hospital.

The pedestrian was not injured.  Deputies inspected the pickup and determined it contained a working meth lab inside the cab of the pickup.   At this time, State Road 54 is shutdown from Ryals Road to Geiger Cemetery Road in Zephyrhills.  Officials believe the road could be shutdown for at least the next hour.
