BRADENTON, Fl.- A five-car chain reaction crash resulted in two cars catching fire around 12:50 p.m. Saturday, January 7th, on Interstate 75 near State Road 64.
Three lanes of northbound traffic were blocked.
Investigators said congestion caused the vehicles to slow down when an SUV failed to maintain proper distance and hit the car in front of it. The crash caused a chain reaction involving three other vehicles. Three people sustained minor injuries due to the incident.
