bridge2All lanes at Overpass Road and southbound Interstate 75 (south of S.R. 5.2. at the 282 milepost) have been reopened this morning after a truck clipped the overpass Monday night and caused it and all northbound lanes to be closed last night.

According to the Florida Highway Patrol, Aubrey Reed, 60, of Brownwood, Texas, was towing a crane in his 2014 Peterbilt truck when he struck Overpass Road in Pasco County Monday evening, shortly after 5 p.m.

The damage was described as “severe” as inspectors were called out to assess. Around 9 p.m., Overpass Road was reopened as well as the inside northbound lane of I-75. The outside lane remained closed overnight.

Reed, who was not injured, was ticketed for an over-height load in his 2014 Peterbilt Truck, according to FHP.
