A crash on the Florida Turnpike through Lauderhill caused a tractor-trailer to land on top of the median wall, police authorities said.
It was just after a short time when a white 2012 Toyota, black 2014 BMW and a gray 2001 Ford Ranger truck all collided north of the Sunrise Boulevard exit and just south of the Oakland Park Boulevard overpass, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
The tractor-trailer had hit the concrete barrier wall and became hung up on the median its front hood pointing into southbound traffic.
It was removed then from the wall and placed onto a flatbed tow truck within an hour but the incident caused massive northbound delays on the turnpike as three lanes were initially closed off to traffic.
The driver of the BMW was rushed to a nearby hospital for immediate medical attention.
The Semi-trailer driver had also sustain head injuries and was taken to Broward Health North medical center as a precaution. He was treated for minor injuries and released, said a Florida Highway Patrol Lieutenant.
