A semi truck hauling fertilizer has overturned on the entrance ramp from Highway 579 onto westbound Interstate 4 near Thonotosassa, Hillsborough County Fire Rescue said.

The ramp is completely blocked by the overturned truck, fire rescue said. Other traffic traveling on Interstate 4 is not affected.

The Florida Highway Patrol cited the driver of the truck for careless driving. Troopers said the truck was making a left turn from northbound Highway 579 onto the ramp when the fertilizer load it was pulling shifted inside the tank trailer and caused the truck to turn over on its right side.
