Two people cut from vehicle following 484 crash


Two people had to be cut from their vehicle Tuesday afternoon following a traffic crash.

At approximately 1:13 p.m., Marion County Fire Rescue responded to  I-75 and Highway 484 after a caller reported an accident in which two people were trapped.

Shady Station #16 Engine Company and Liberty Station #32 Engine Company arrived on scene within minutes and began work to free the entrapped occupants. They were later accompanied by R518, R10, MCFR Safety, and R24.

Firefighters were able to stabilize the vehicle, at which time they began popping open the doors. Firefighters had to cut the roof off of the overturned vehicle in order to remove the occupants safely.

Three people were transported to a local hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

The cause of the accident is under investigation by Florida Highway Patrol.

    There’s a accident in that corner of I-75 and 484 almost every other day. the speed limit is 45mph there and that is too fast for that stretch of road where they have so much traffic and all these gas stations and restaurants in a 2 block area. i never go more that 30 mph when I go thru there, cars coming from all sides up and down 484 and crazy traffic on and off of I-75, just crazy.
