PALMETTO, FL. (WWSB) - A 50-year-old Orlando man has died following a crash on I-75 North at the entrance to the I-275 North.

The accident happened around 4:30am Wednesday. Troopers say for unknown reasons, the man, whose name has not yet been released, was driving his semi in the center lane before running off the road into a concrete pylon of the I-275 North overpass.

Troopers say there were no skid marks at the scene.

The right lane on I-75 North and the entrance ramp to I-275 North were closed until 9am. They have since re-opened after emergency crews determined the overpass did not suffer any structural damage.
