DADE CITY, Fla. (AP) - The southbound lanes of Interstate 75 north of Tampa are open again following a fatal, wrong-way crash.

The crash happened early Monday near Dade City in Pasco County.

The Florida Highway Patrol says a 25-year-old was driving north in the inside lane of I-75 around 4:35 a.m. Monday. She struck a tractor trailer hauling food and beverage products.

The woman was taken to Bayonet Point Medical Center in Hudson, where she died.

The truck driver wasn’t injured.

Southbound traffic on Interstate 75 was diverted at Exit 293 but troopers say the outside lane opened shortly after 7 a.m. An investigation is underway.
