Mud Spill Closed I-75 For Three Hours

Richard Ford, 52 of North Fort Myers, Fl. has been charged with failing to secure a load after his dump truck spilled a huge load of mud on I-75 in Manatee county Tuesday morning, shutting down traffic for hours.

Ford was traveling southbound at mile marker 217, near State Road 93 south of Linger Lodge, when a load of mud spilled through the rear gate onto the roadway for 640 feet across all southbound lanes of I-75.

The East Manatee Fire Department washed down the lanes as portions were closed from 9:16 a.m. until 12:15 p.m.
