A crash in Florida on Thursday involving two big rigs and two passenger vehicles killed seven people, including five children from a Louisiana church group, injured eight others, and sparked a massive fire after 50 gallons of diesel fuel spilled onto the road. The accident on southbound Interstate 75 north of Gainesville closed part of the highway in both directions, and authorities did not open the southbound lanes until Friday morning. The fire was so intense it damaged the road.
