HIGH SPRINGS – A major accident just south of the High Springs exit onto Interstate-75 brought firefighters from the High Springs Fire Department (HSFD) and Alachua County Fire/Rescue out at approximately 5:20 a.m., Wednesday. The crash occurred on I-75 southbound near mile marker 403, just south of the County Road 236 exit.
Upon arrival, High Springs firefighters found a vehicle severely damaged with occupants trapped inside. Thanks in part to the fire department’s newly acquired hydraulic tool, firefighters had the occupants removed within a matter of minutes. One subject was transported to the hospital by Alachua County Fire/Rescue, and two others refused transport according to a HSFD report.
A thick fog in the area was a possible factor in the crash, although the exact cause is under investigation by law enforcement.
