Semi Tractor Trailer Collision with Van Results in One Death

On Friday, March 8th, Veronica Edwards died after being involved in a crash on I-75. She drove into the rear end of a semi tractor trailer driven by Yadian Rodriguez, age 30. Ms. Edwards, age 42, died at the scene of the accident. Ms. Edwards was apparently attempting to take the Big Bend exit at the time. The semi had just pulled into the emergency lane near the exit ramp. Traffic on I-75 South was obstructed and traffic was reduced to a crawl for over three hours while the Florida Highway Patrol was working the scene of the fatal collision along with the Hillsborough Count Sheriff’s Office.
