First Alert Traffic: Lanes re-opened after separate crashes on I-75 South and State Road 70

SARASOTA (WWSB) - State Road 70 and I-75 had multiple crashes Tuesday morning.

Around 7:45am, there was a crash on I-75 South near milemarker 217, which is just south of State Road 70, closing at least two lanes and bringing traffic to a halt. However, all lanes have re-opened as the damaged vehicles have been moved to the side of I-75. But traffic is moving very slowly past the crash area.

Then, on State Road 70 heading west about a mile from I-75, there was a crash blocking two westbound lanes at Caruso Road. However, all lanes were closed for a time as police worked with tow companies to remove the damaged vehicles.

Once the vehicles were removed, police opened all lanes, but much like the I-75, traffic is moving slowly past the crash point.
