ABSTRACT

U.S. Fire Administration/Technical Report Series: I-75 Multiple Vehicle Collision/Mass Casualty Incident   [open pdf - 2MB]

This technical report series looks at a massive motor vehicle collision along I-75 in a rural area of Collier County, FL. Three people were killed and 13 were injured. Access to the site was limited by both its remote location and the massive traffic backups, which ensued following 8 separate collisions along the Interstate. The incident shut down I-75 in both directions, backing up traffic from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean. It took 58 emergency responders to manage the incident.
