>> good morning. right now we have a developing situation at i-4 and 275. the junction downtown tampa. deadly crash has lanes blocked since early this morning. we want to go out to alcides segui. since the crash is causing major delays tell us what you are seeing out there alcides. >> expect delays as investigators are processing the scene. motorcycle in the back of the tow truck. you can see, it is a sports motorcycle, from what we beed. florida highway patrol saying motorcyclist was speeding from i-4 going westbound, going on to either 275, south, or getting off on downtown exit.
slammed into the guardrail. his body went flying and came to rest good 20 or 30 yards away. he was speeding at such a high velocity that motorcycle kept traveling onto the onramp. toward 275. at least another two, 300 yards. again, it looks like, from what i can tell right now, they are almost done providing the scene. typically when they remove the vehicle it is because they are for medical examiner to remove that body. you know, praying for him and his family as well. in terms of the traffic. you said it right. it is a traffic nightmare. especially when you're coming i-4, westbound. it is backed up for several miles. from what we understand. past selmon expressway. so if you typically take i-4 to downtown area.
or westshore or tampa international. remember southbound 275 is closed off. so is the downtown exit east and west. they will remain closed for another half hour. possibly more than, that that's why we are seeing backups for miles. so again avoid this area. but you said it well, short time ago, when you said if you can, if you work downtown. same selmon expressway because it is backed up a commute continues. back to you. >> alcides we are still looking at delays back to selmon connector. and you said it as well. i mean if this continue, i would say until 6:30, we will see some exponential growth in delays, that's when the cars hit the roadways. all right. thank you alcides. live look westbound i-4, coming into interchange. detours are in place and it is clogged up toward that area.
usually takes nine to get from 75 to 275. so that illustrates just the delays we are seeing right now westbound i-4. so to reiterate. selmon expressway best work around for drivers. more updates to come. >> when i walked in the door this morning, it was 77 degrees outside. i thought man. now steadily dropped back. 6:00 hour. by the way 7:30 sunrise. cooling to go. 73 at the airport. 72 along highway 27 and few sprinkles north. i like that. crystal river. scattered clouds today. as we have had all week long. one or two sprinkles or isolated showers moving across the state from east to west. i think with enough sunshine we are back up to 87 degrees. laura, walter. >> thank you dave. this morning we are learning more about a tragic crash in polk county. >> five-year-old boy hit by a
