Archives, Trucking Accidents

During lunch hour traffic, a semi-tractor trailer on Interstate 4 lost control of his vehicle, crashing through a guardrail on the side of the road.

All except one of the east bound lanes of Interstate 4 in Altamonte Springs were closed due to a diesel fuel leak.  The Seminole County Hazardous Materials Team and Environmental Services were on the scene to clean up the spill.

The driver was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries; no other vehicles were involved.  It is unknown what caused him to lose control.
