U.S. 27 closed due to overturned tractor-trailer

Archives, Trucking Accidents

Lanes on the southbound U. S. Highway 27 were closed early Monday morning when a tractor-trailer overturned and stopped traffic.  Apparently, the truck driver exited too sharply causing the truck to skid about 500 feet before it stopped on Interstate-75 on its side.

 

Broward Sheriff Fire Rescue and BSO teams tried to upright the truck, stopping traffic.  The driver was treated for minor injuries and then taken to Broward General Medical Center.
