Caloosahatchee Bridge scene of several truck accidents

Archives, Trucking 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.
