Florida Turnpike closes due to a tractor-trailer accident

Archives, Trucking Accidents

The Sunday morning drivers on the Florida Turnpike were not happy recently when all lanes near Hollywood Boulevard were closed in both directions as a result of a tractor-trailer crashing into the median wall.  

The impact caused the tractor-trailer’s tank to spill fuel all over the lanes.  According to a Florida Highway Patrol officer, the lanes could not reopen until the spill was cleaned up by fire rescue crews.

The driver was not injured.  Investigations are underway to determine what caused the driver to crash into the median wall.  He would be wise to consult with an experienced Truck Accident attorney to determine his next steps.
