The Florida Department of Law Enforcement today released its report on the deadly January accidents on I-75 in Alachua County.
The FDLE found no criminal intent in decisions made by the Florida Highway Patrol or other government agencies. At the time of the accidents, there was dense fog on the road and smoke from controlled burns at nearby Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park. And the wrecks happened in north and southbound lanes on a low-lying stretch of I-75. Eleven people died and nearly two dozen were hurt.
