DADE CITY, Fla. — A pickup truck towing a camper trailer overturned Friday morning along Interstate 75 in Pasco County, which caused major delays for Friday morning commuters, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. 

It happened around 5:13 a.m. on I-75 just before CR-41 south of Blanton Road. 

According to FHP, the pickup truck driver was going too fast "for conditions," which resulted in the camper fishtailing. The driver then lost control and the truck and camper rotated and overturned, blocking the roadway. 

The driver and his five passengers weren't hurt. 

Traffic cameras in the area showed most of the congestion was backed up along I-75 near Lake Lola Road. The road reopened to traffic just after 7:30 a.m., but traffic appeared to still be slow for some time.
