A Road Ranger was hit while providing support for a crash by a driver that went around cones in Hernando County.
The ranger was responding to a crash involving an overturned tractor-trailer very early Thursday morning on SB I-75 at mile marker 301.
At about 2:30 AM, that road ranger was setting up a northbound detour at Exit 293 in support of the initial crash when a 71-year-old Tampa man that wasn't paying attention driving a 2000 Toyota Sienna drove around the traffic cones and collided with the 38-year-old Ranger, officials said.
The Ranger was airlifted to an area hospital with serious injuries.
No one was seriously injured in the initial crash.
