Undoubtedly once of the most recognizable interstate roads in the State of Florida, I-75 has been connecting us to the rest of the country since 1977. This major cross-country, north-south route spans from the northern tip of Michigan all the way to the Miami Dade area of southern Florida. For the Sunshine State alone, it runs mostly along the Gulf coast for approximately 470 miles. It serves as a west coast hub for many residents traveling up and down the state’s shores. It should come as no surprise, then, that this highway is no stranger to auto accident injury.
As a matter of fact, The Daily Beast (using data compiled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) reported in 2010 that I-75 is the 15th most deadly highway in the United States, with 536 fatal accidents over a five year period.
