Caloosahatchee Bridge scene of several truck accidents
Apparently the area around the Caloosahatchee Bridge has seen several accidents this past week, one happening the other day.
An accident involving a tractor trailer earlier caused the southbound lanes of the Interstate 75 Calooshatchee Bridge to be closed for over two hours, causing traffic to back up. The 18-wheeler was used to haul cars.
Previous to this accident, a semi jackknifed on the northbound side of the bridge and last week, another semi slammed into the concrete barrier on the southbound side – north of the bridge.
The Florida Highway Patrol is investigating these accidents and the areas where the accidents took place.
