Tice overpass closed over I-75
FORT MYERS, Fla. - A semi truck hauling a backhoe clipped the bottom of the Tice Overpass on southbound I-75 damaging the bridge and three other vehicles.
The Florida Highway Patrol says 42-year-old Mitchel Soler of Bonita Springs was driving the big rig and was cited for exceeding the maximum height and a tow violation.
Large chunks of concrete fell onto I-75. One piece hit a van damaging its windsheild. Two cars hit concrete debris that landed on the roadway.
Fortunately none of the drivers were hurt.
The overpass will remained closed until a complete damage assessment is made.
