Tractor-Trailer Crash Blocks I-95 Near Royal Palm Way
A Florida man crashed into a tractor-trailer and injured one in a two-vehicle crash, FHP reports.
The Florida Highway Patrol says the 47-year-old man was driving northbound on I-95 near the Royal Palm Way 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.
Attorney Jason Weisser of Schuler, Halvorson, Weisser, Zoeller and Overbeck responded about the crash. “Cases involving accidents with tractor trailers are always subject to heightened scrutiny because of the additional regulations placed on drivers of those vehicles. Unfortunately, in our practice, we have seen numerous instances where drivers blatantly violate these regulations, which results in catastrophic consequences.”
