The crash happened just before 7:30 a.m. Sunday on I-75 near SR-56, according to a Florida Highway Patrol news release.

The impact caused the car to spin off onto the shoulder, while the Tampa cruiser was hit by another car.

Charges are likely to be brought against the man pending the outcome of the investigation, FHP said.
