TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — Eight people were sent to the hospital after a truck dumped wet soil onto an I-75 on-ramp in Brandon on Wednesday.
Florida Department of Transportation cameras showed several cars piled up under an overpass near the 301 interchange at around 8:30 a.m.
Hillsborough County Fire Rescue said the mud created a slick, ice-like surface over several hundred yards, causing vehicles to lose traction.
HCFR said eight people were taken to local hospitals, with one in serious condition. The fire department said they sent 20 units to the site of the crash.
The 301 on-ramp remains closed as crews work to clean up the mess.
