A construction worker was killed when a section of an unused overpass collapsed onto the southbound lanes of I-75 Monday night. A truck driver was hurt when his semi hit the collapse, near Hopple Street. Chief Jeffery Blackwell says the collapse will affect southbound traffic.
"We anticipate at least a 48-hour closure of 75 South. We want to advise people to please stay away from the area," he said.
Blackwell also pointed out the truck driver was lucky.
"In a matter of seconds, his fate would have been different as well."
