      I-75 in Monroe County open after semi accident

      A major part of I-75 south near Sterns road in Monroe County has re-opened following a collision between two semi trucks.

      It happened just before 11 p.m. Wednesday, after a tanker truck and semi flatbed loaded with cargo vans collided.

      According to the Monroe County Sheriff's office crews had to clean oil and diesel fuel from the roadway as a result of the accident.

      Both drivers suffered minor injuries, and were taken to St. Vincent's hospital for treatment.

      After nearly six hours of being closed the roadway re-opened around 5:30 a.m.

      The crash remains under investigation.
