One person is dead as a result of the traffic tie-ups on I-75 southbound in southern Manatee county.  A 19 year old Naples woman was killed after the car in which she was riding overturned.

The accident happened around 6:30pm Monday on southbound I-75 near State Road 70.  The driver of the vehicle swerved sharply to avoid a vehicle stopped as part of the I-75 traffic tie up over University Parkway.  The car flipped and the female passenger was killed.
