A semi-truck ended up dangling from a bridge over the Manatee River south of Tampa. The truck was traveling in the center lane of I-75 when a vehicle moved from the right lane to the center lane in front of the semi.
The driver, a 49-year-old Sarasota man, tried to avoid the vehicle but lost control of the semi and trailer because of the wet roads. The tractor portion of the semi went over the concrete barrier, and ended up hanging over the edge of the bridge.The driver was able to get out safely and only had minor injuries.
