Reminds me of the 161 car pileup about 18 years ago in Mobile. Only 1 death.

I think there was one from smoke up near Ocala not long ago.

Last year near Gainesville. 11 dead. Accidents in both north and south bound due to smoke from suspected arson.

Come on its Sarasota you damn well there was a 90 year old in the left lane doing 40MPH. Thats the only reason there were no fatalities.
