FHP said for some reason, the car and the tractor-trailer came into contact with each other, sending both vehicles through a guardrail and into the northbound lanes of the interstate.

A pickup truck hauling a trailer and an SUV traveling northbound then slammed into the car and the tractor-trailer and burst into flames.

FHP said the driver of the pickup, SUV, and tractor-trailer were all killed in the crash.
