SEFFNER, Fla. — A 2-month-old injured in a multi-car pileup Monday on Interstate 75 in Seffner has died, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.

  • 2 deaths now reported in Monday I-75 crash
  • Asher Gaspard, 2 months old, has died
  • Charges pending, according to FHP

The toddler was identified as Asher Gaspard. The boy was in a vehicle with Fritzy Gaspard, 34, Amaiya Gaspard, 10, and Annalise Gaspard, 4. They suffered minor injuries.

The death was the second reported in Monday's crash. David Ross Garcia, 46, of Inverness, was killed at the scene.

Troopers say the crashes happened at about 2:30 p.m. when traffic on I-75 south was slowed. The driver of a dump truck collided with two vehicles, overturned on another and then collided with five more cars, according to a release from FHP.

In total, six people including the dump truck driver suffered minor injuries.

Southbound lanes were closed until about 8:30 p.m. Monday.

FHP says the investigation is still under way, and charges are pending.

NOTE: An earlier FHP release said Asher Gaspard was a girl. That has since been corrected.
