A woman was ticketed when the vehicle she was driving overturned, blocking two lanes of traffic on Interstate 75 on Saturday morning.

The woman was cited by a Florida Highway Patrol trooper for failing to maintain a single lane.

Traffic, which was backed up and slow moving for miles, was cleared at 10:35 a.m., approximately two hours after law enforcement officials were notified about the crash.

According to troopers, the woman was driving a Dodge 4x4 southbound on I-75 when the trailer fish-tailed, causing her to loose control of the vehicle. The trailer then struck a guardrail and both the trailer and Dodge overturned, officials said.

The crash, which occurred roughly a mile north of the State Road 200 exit, blocked the middle and left lanes.

Neither the woman, her husband or 13-year-old dog name Sammy were injured. She told the Star-Banner that she had left Orlando and was on her way to Ohio, where she lives.
