BRADENTON, FL (WWSB) - A two vehicle accident caused severe delays on I-75 this morning around 6:00 a.m. 

A truck was heading southbound and tried to get over to the exit lane at University Parkway, but the driver didn't see a Grand Marquis right next to it.

The truck collided with the marquis and sent both cars into the guard rail.

The driver of the grand marquis walked away with only minor injuries, but emergency crews had to use the jaws of life to pull the driver out of the truck.

The driver of the truck was rushed to Sarasota Memorial Hospital and listed in critical condition.

No word yet on if either driver will face any charges.
