July 28—A tractor-trailer driver was killed this morning after he ran off Interstate 75 and crashed near Wildwood, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

Steve Alan Clark, 63, of Orange Park, was northbound on I-75 just before 6 a.m. when he drove off the road onto the outside shoulder and plowed into a woodsy area, the FHP said.

The semi erupted in flames at mile marker 328, in Sumter County just south of Florida’s Turnpike. Clark died at the scene, the FHP said.

The accident temporarily closed northbound lanes of the interstate.
