Log truck loses load on Interstate 75

- A log truck lost its load along Interstate 75 Monday morning, leaving a mess that blocked traffic in both directions.

The scene of the accident is just south of State Road 52 in Pasco County. All northbound lanes of I-75 were blocked for hours, and southbound traffic was reduced to one lane.

The Florida Highway Patrol says the northbound truck's load shifted, causing the driver to lose control and roll over.  The logs then spilled out across both directions of the highway.

Cleanup could took several hours. The road was reopened to traffic just before 1 p.m.
