Tractor-Trailer Crash Blocks I-95 Near Okeechobee Blvd
A Florida man crashed into a tractor-trailer and injured one in a two-vehicle crash, FHP reports.
Florida Highway Patrol says the 47-year-old man was driving northbound on I-95 near Okeechobee Blvd exit ramp when he ran a red light and struck a tractor-trailer, pushing it off the road.
The truck driver sustained some injuries in the crash.
First emergency responders arrived at the site soon after the accident happened and the crash victim was transported to the hospital for treatment.
This route is partially blocked due to the severity of the crash, causing traffic delays. Vehicles on this route are pulling to the roadside to allow crews work. It is best to exit I-95 via Southern Blvd or Palm Beach Lakes Blvd in the north.

If you are in an accident where someone didn’t follow the posted signs or signals, please call me so that we can discuss your rights.”
