TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A bizarre crash caused some delays on I-75 at Fletcher Avenue on Friday morning.

Police say a driver slammed into the back of a dump truck, causing it to flip off the side of the interstate.

The driver of the car was injured – but not in the crash, Florida Highway Patrol officers said. He was injured after punching himself in the face four or five times and throwing himself to the ground in a fit.

The man, who has not been identified, was taken to the hospital. The condition of the truck driver is unknown at this point.

The lanes were closed, but at last check at least one lane was getting through.
