A pickup truck involved in a deadly Florida interstate pileup was so badly burned and crushed that it took investigators more than two days to find a third body inside, authorities said Wednesday.

The discovery brings the death toll from the weekend crashes on Interstate 75 to 11. The condition of the wreckage has also prompted investigators to enlist anthropologists to help identify victims.

The newly discovered victim was inside a Dodge pickup truck that crashed into a tractor trailer as it traveled south early Sunday in smoky and foggy conditions, authorities determined Tuesday. The pickup's driver and another passenger were discovered before, but none of the three had been identified Wednesday.

Anthropologists from the University of Florida were looking for any bone fragments and teeth that may help identify the bodies from the pickup. The other eight victims have been identified.

"The vehicle was crushed between multiple vehicles," said Larry Bedore, director of investigations for the medical examiner's office in Gainesville. "It was in the center of an inferno that melted most of the metal and a lot of the glass."

Authorities closed the busy six-lane highway early Sunday because a mix of fog and smoke from a nearby brush fire made visibility difficult. The road was reopened about three hours later after the Highway Patrol determined conditions had improved. The first pileup occurred a short time later.

At least a dozen cars, six tractor trailers and a motorhome collided. Some cars were crushed under the bellies of big rigs. Others burst into flames, making it difficult to identify victims.
